Amber Arcades announces new album, 'European Heartbreak'

It’s released this September.

Ever one for planning ahead, Amber Arcades has already announced her new album - that’s set for release in September!

The follow-up to 2016’s ‘Fading Lines’ is called ‘European Heartbreak’, and it’ll be out on 28th September (which is, as any calendar aficionado will attest, almost October), and feature new song, ‘Simple Song’. She’s already unveiled another of the record’s tracks, ‘Goodnight Europe’. The videos for these - and one yet to come - will form part of a “trilogy”, she says.

“This music video forms part 2 of a trilogy which tells a modern European (love) story, touching on various thoughts and feelings that inspired my new record. Using the medium of film to tell this story ties it to one of the central ideas of the record, which is the essential nature of storytelling in understanding our lives. For me, part 1 focused very much on a feeling of isolation, being trapped in an external surrounding which feels anxious and numb at the same time. Part 2, the music video for ‘Simple Song’, translates these feelings into the dynamics of a romantic relationship.”

The track listing for 'European Heartbreak' is:

Simple Song
Hardly Knew
Oh My Love (What Have We Done)
Goodnight Europe
Alpine Town
I've Done The Best
Self-Portrait In A Car At Night
Something's Gonna Take Your Love Away
Antoine
Where Did You Go
