Sundara Karma announce new album ‘Ulfilas’ Alphabet’, share ‘One Last Night On This Earth’

The record will come out next March via Chess Club/RCA.

They announced a huge UK tour yesterday, and Sundara Karma have now revealed details of their second album!

‘Ulfilas’ Alphabet’ will come out on 1st March next year via Chess Club/RCA, and the band have shared a second track from it.

‘One Last Night On This Earth’ was shared as Annie Mac’s Hottest Record last night (31st October), and follows comeback single  ‘Illusions’ in previewing the follow-up to 2017 debut ‘Youth Is Only Ever Fun In Retrospect’.

“Normally I’ll have a batch of ideas and I’ll chip away at them for months until something emerges but for this song I was fortunate enough to have that moment where everything fell into place,” frontman Oscar Pollock says of the new track.

“I wanted to write a song about an extra-terrestrial who’s been sent to Earth to observe human interaction. The being’s mission is to find an emotion that their species has never felt before but it ends up finding nothing…until it falls in love the night before it has to leave and realises, ahh this is the trick, this is the game we haven’t been playing.”
