FIDLAR Announce New Album 'Almost Free', Share New Single Can't You See

There's a new FIDLAR album on the way.

The Los Angeles-based band will put out 'Almost Free', the follow up to 2015's 'Too', on January 25 through Mom & Pop. It will feature the previously shared tracks Alcohol and Too Real, but not Are You High?. That is only physically available as a b-side on a bonus 7" flexi disc of new single Can't You See, which is included with certain album bundles.

Discussing the new track, guitarist and vocalist Elvis Kuehn said:

“[Can't You See] is about believing you need external things to be fulfilled, when really that comes from within yourself.  Play it loud while driving around Los Angeles and it’ll make sense."

About the record, he added

"It was about taking the ceiling off. Having it be limitless. Ain't no rules. 'Almost Free' feels like a step forward for us in a lot of ways. We tried to be true to ourselves and let the music come out naturally, without fear of how people would receive it."

Head below to listen to the new single. It is yet another curve ball from the band, this time musically digging into their classic rock influences and previewing yet another side of the new album and themselves, leaving behind the chaotic, punk sensibilities of the previously shared cuts.

It’s one year since we said we’d see Tom Petty somewhere along the road, and it’s still a bitter one to swallow. We’ve had time to accept that there’s a full stop to his story, and to understand our relationship with his music in a new context, but that doesn’t mean we have to like it.

We Were Promised Jetpacks - The More I Sleep The Less I Dream (Album Review)
Thu 27 Sep 2018
Album four from Edinburgh's We Were Promised Jetpacks is, in their own words, about going back to basics. Since 2014’s ‘Unravelling’ they’ve changed management and label, both potential pitfalls, while recording was undertaken in the US with producer Jonathan Low. Running alongside these changes on ‘The More I Sleep The Less I Dream’ is the switch back to their original four man configuration and something approximating the style of their early releases.

Mon 01 Oct 2018
Remix albums don’t always work. The best examples refresh and reveal elements of the original songs, giving them new life and often broadening their appeal. When they fail, it is often because the tracks lack the integrity and consistency of the source material.
