James Announce New Album 'Living In Extraordinary Times'

Wednesday, 16 May 2018 Written by Laura Johnson

James will release a new album this summer.

'Living In Extraordinary Times' is due to arrive on August 3 and will follow up this year's 'Better Than That' EP. The record was produced by Charlie Andrew and Beni Giles.

Discussing it, Andrew said:

“This album is full of big tunes. Tim and the guys are all very good at writing huge hooks. There’s some really big, energetic tracks and some nice, chilled ones. There’s some monstrous tracks, like ‘Hank’, which is just vast with layers and layers of drums.”

In a statement, vocalist Tim Booth commented:

“We knew something was up when Leicester city won the league then Brexit, then Trump. It is as if we'd slipped into an alternate reality, a Philip K Dick reality. We are living in extraordinary times.”

Head below to check out the album's opener, Hank, along with its artwork and tracklist.

'Living In Extraordinary Times' tracklist:

  1. Hank

Listening to 'Living In Extraordinary Times', the thought occurs that indie-pop stalwarts James aren’t dissimilar to a shark. Such is the Manchester octet’s devotion to exploring fresh textures, with an insatiable forward momentum, that if they stop moving it’s likely they’ll immediately shuffle off to the great gig in the sky. Fortunately, if the band’s most recent output - and especially this effort - is anything to by, they won’t be playing chess with the Grim Reaper any time soon.
