Ahead of the group’s UK and Ireland tour, beginning today in Huddersfield, Spector have shared a previously unreleased track.
Of ‘Felony’, frontman Fred Macpherson says: ‘”Jed played us an early version ‘Felony’ during the ‘Moth Boys’ sessions and the chorus has been going round my head since. Luckily, like My Bloody Valentine’s Loveless, it only took seven years to finish. It’s the final song of the (covid-extended) ‘Now or Whenever’ era, released to celebrate our tour starting tonight. Will we play it live? Come and see.”
Bandmate Jed Cullen adds: “Sometimes doing absolutely nothing and letting those initial emotions of infatuation fade can uncover a friendship much more beautiful and long lasting than how a more romantic relationship might have gone. It can be really embarrassing to then look back and think that you fancied one of your friends and that’s probably why it took so much convincing from Fred for me to finish writing this song.”
