Maximo Park announce new album ‘Nature Always Wins’

Watch the video for lead single ‘Baby, Sleep’ now.

Following their return with ‘Child Of The Flatlands’ last month, Maximo Park have announced that they’ve got a brand new album on the way, confirming that ‘Nature Always Wins’ will be released on 26th February via Polifica Inc.

“I’m so happy we were able to make this album during lockdown, as it’s been a challenging time for everyone,” Paul Smith says. “After almost 4 years since ‘Risk To Exist’, we wanted to explore new musical territory (for us) without sacrificing our trademark melodic twists and heartfelt lyrics. As always, the passing of time looms large, although the songs contain more affection for the past than before, and there are occasional hints of the fractious, divided time that we live in.”

Sharing lead single ‘Baby, Sleep’, he adds, “‘Baby, Sleep’ is a light-hearted look at the surreal nature of sleep-deprivation, and the way it distorts normality in a capitalist society.”

Alongside the news, the band have also announced a UK tour for Summer 2021! Tickets go on sale on 23rd October, and you can check out the full list of dates below.
