Hard to believe it’s been more than a decade since Lightning Seeds released a new album but at last we can celebrate with the release of See You In The Stars, their first on new label BMG – out October 14th.
They also announce a 14 date UK tour later this year kicking off October 27th in Cambridge and finishing November 26th in Sheffield. They play London’s O2 Shepherd’s Bush Empire November 4th. Fans who pre order See You In The Stars from the official artist store will receive access to an exclusive ticket pre-sale. The pre-sale will run from 10am BST on Monday 20th June until the general sale which starts at 10am on Wednesday 22nd June 2022.
This intoxicating 10 track collection is tunefully, emotionally, uplifting and is destined to kick start the summer with the feel good warmth of first track Sunshine – listen here. One of the album highlights, Emily Smiles, was co-written with Specials man Terry Hall, whom Ian wrote Jollification’s Lucky You with.
All songs on this ten track opus were written and recorded in short bursts over the last three years. The first two songs recorded were a pair written with the Coral’s James Skelly: Great To Be Alive and Live To Love You.
“I always think music’s like attack and defence in football –or like politics – or like life. It’s about balance,” Ian Broudie says. “And achieving that is the challenge for me.”
They will perform at Leeds Stylus on November 5th & The Leadmill in Sheffield on November 26th.
