Over a decade since their last record ‘The Last Romance’, Arab Strap have announced that their first new album in 16 years will be arriving on 5th March!
Speaking on their forthcoming seventh studio album, titled ‘As Days Get Dark’, Aidan Moffat says, “It’s about hopelessness and darkness. But in a fun way.”
“This album feels like its own new thing to me,” he continues. “It’s definitely Arab Strap, but an older and wiser one, and quite probably a better one.”
Alongside the news, the duo are giving us a glimpse of what to expect, sharing brand new track ‘Compersion Pt. 1’. Check it out below.
