Earlier this year Teenage Fanclub announced news of their new album Nothing Lasts Forever, due out 22nd September via their own label PeMa.
Having previously shared the lead track Foreign Land, today they release their new single and album highlight, Tired Of Being Alone.
A wistful beauty written by Raymond McGinley, the track comes accompanied by a video shot by Donald Milne at Vibberodden Lighthouse near Egersund, Norway. Watch here: https://youtu.be/JYu7FiYLWqE.
Commenting on the track Raymond McGinley says:
“Towards the end of our session in Rockfield Studios making the album I woke up in the middle of the night. There was a guitar next to the bed. I picked it up and this song came out. The words for the chorus were there already. I recorded a rough version on my phone and then went back to sleep. We recorded the song later that day. As a band we like to trust our instincts and let things happen. As with Norman’s song ‘Foreign Land’ this song only exists because we decided to go to the studio and make a record. If we’d waited for the stars to align first before recording we’d still be waiting now.”
The band perform at the Brudenell Social Club in Leeds on November 8th and The Leadmill in Sheffield on November 12th.
