Ahh, what a great week this is turning out to be! Not only are The Last Shadow Puppets back on the scene with a new album due out this spring, I have also just discovered that The Coral are also due to release a new record in March too!
It’s been fifteen years since The Coral released their self-titled debut, and this album in particular remains to be one of my all time favourites! It was so different when it emerged and since its release in 2001 The Coral have sold over a million UK albums, with five reaching the Top 10!
Last November the band announced their 2016 return after a five-year gap with a new studio album set to be released on 4 March. Recorded live and virtually in one take at Liverpool’s Parr Street Studio with co-producer Richard Turvey, ‘Distance Inbetween’ looks set to be an album well worth the wait.
The bands current line-up consists of James Skelly (vocals, guitars), Ian Skelly (drums/percussion/vocals), Nick Power (keyboard/vocals), and Paul Duffy (bass/keyboards/vocals), with former Zutons member Paul Malloy (formerly of The Zutons) joining as a new member!
To mark their return the band have released new single ‘Chasing The Tail Of A Dream’ which is available now as a free download from the band’s website alongside a limited edition (1000 copies) 7″….and if this psychedelic wonder of a song is anything to go by, I definitely can’t wait for March 4th! Watch above!
