Bombay Bicycle Club Announce New Album to be Released February 4th, First Single "Carry Me" Out Now
We are excited to announce that North London's Bombay Bicycle Club, will release their fourth album in five years on February 4, 2013 via Vagrant! This album looks to break exciting new ground yet again for a band that are effortlessly diversifying and innovating at an astonishing rate.
"I feel like we’ve found the balance between making it interesting and intelligent, but also not highbrow or elitist’ says Jack Steadman, noting the band specifically took longer to craft this album. He wrote the record while traveling through India, Turkey and Tokyo as well as the UK and the Netherlands; you can really hear the influence of all the different cultures and their native genres among the beautifully crafted songs on this hugely ambitious record.
The album was produced by Jack in the band’s studio in London, making it their most personal record to date. There was always purpose from the beginning to bring everything together for this album, to tell a story from the first track through to the finale with everything interconnecting as a complete body of work. "The whole creation process was a really honest one. Jack’s not afraid of us saying a part or lyric doesn’t work so we were able to all be very involved at every level" says guitarist Jamie MacColl. They called in Mark Rankin (QOTSA, AlunaGeorge) to help record and mix the album. The album also features familiar vocal contribution from Lucy Rose as well as impressive newcomer Rae Morris.
The first single from the new album, "Carry Me", is now available to purchase/download on iTunes HERE. The band collaborated with award-winning creative company Powster to deliver a world first interactive music video premiere on CarryMe.tv. The innovative video reflects the album artwork, paying homage to the great Eadweard Muybridge, known for his pioneering work with stop-motion photography. Viewers are able to control the band’s actions throughout, essentially making them the director while the band perform in time to the music. You can also stream the audio below via YouTube. Pre-order information for the new album will be announced shortly.
