Sleeper Announce First Album In 21 Years 'The Modern Age', Share New Song Look At You Now

Wednesday, 05 December 2018 Written by Jon Stickler

Sleeper will return with their first album in 21 years next spring.

The reformed Britpop band will release the Pledge-funded 'The Modern Age' via their own Gorsky Records on March 22, after spending the summer of this year recording with their longtime producer, Stephen Street. They tracked live at Metway Studios in their adopted city of Brighton, before decamping to Street's studio in west London to add the finishing touches.

Covering subjects from motherhood and social media to personal loss and, inevitably, relationships, 'The Modern Age' wasn't meant to happen. In fact, the band had promised each other it never would. Singer Louise Wener said:

"We had no plan to get back together. Sometimes life throws  you a massive curve ball. You end up jumping off the cliff, just to see what it feels like.”

The first single to be taken from the album, Look at You Now, is out now. Check out the album's cover art, tracklist and stream the new song, below. Sleeper will accomapny the album's release with a previously announced UK tour in February and March, including a London date at the Kentish Town O2 Forum. Tickets are on sale now.

Cate Le Bon - Reward (Album Review)
Tue 04 Jun 2019
Photo: Ivana Kličković Cate Le Bon has never been easy to pin down. Having toured and collaborated with a diverse selection of musicians ranging from St. Vincent to Deerhunter, the Welsh musician and producer could loosely be described as trading in sprawling alt-folk, but that would only tell half the story. On her newest record, ‘Reward’, Le Bon creates a unique world indebted to new wave and jazz as much as it is to contemporary pop and folk acts—all with her own idiosyncratic twist.
