After revealing a pair of new tracks overnight - ‘Movies’ and ‘Be Somebody Good’ both receiving premieres on Annie Mac’s BBC Radio 1 show yesterday - Circa Waves have announced details of their third album.
‘What’s It Like Over There?’ will be released on 5th April via PIAS / Prolifica Inc. It’s the follow-up to 2017’s ‘Different Creatures’ (read the March 2017 cover feature with the band by heading this way). They released debut ‘Young Chasers’ back in 2015.
Of the new record, frontman Kieran Shudall and guitarist Joe Falconer say: “We wanted to start seeing ourselves less in those defined roles – the drummer, the bass player – and blurring the lines a bit more. Instruments were swapped, pianos were played, the song was king. I’m really getting into the world of ‘let the song be the greatest song it could be’, and not let the restrictions of ‘we’re a rock band’ rule. We wanted to make it as big and powerful and as cinematic as it could be. Being completely open to using everything at your whim is really exciting.”
The track listing is:
1. What’s It Like Over There?
2. Sorry I’m Yours
3. Times Won’t Change Me
5. Me, Myself & Hollywood
6. The Way We Say Goodbye
7. Be Somebody Good
