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.

The Twilight Sad - It Won/t Be Like This All The Time (Album Review)
Tue 22 Jan 2019
When football fever gripped England in the summer of 2018, as Gareth Southgate’s side saw off Sweden to book a place in the World Cup semi-finals, the celebrations extended to the sweltering heat of London’s Hyde Park. A huge crowd had assembled to witness a similarly colossal line-up curated by the Cure at British Summer Time, swapping the pubs and bars of the capital for sweeping goth-pop following the final whistle.

Steve Mason - About The Light (Album Review)
Thu 24 Jan 2019
‘About the Light’, Steve Mason’s first collection since 2016, is a raucous album of finely tuned British rock that gyrates and swaggers with skill and precision. It’s an excellent turn from a musician whose decades-long musical career has taken him on a journey through folktronica, experimental indie and the borderlands of downtempo shoegaze, and who has been through multiple reinventions since the Beta Band called it quits.
Blood Red Shoes - Get Tragic (Album Review)
Thu 31 Jan 2019
Blood Red Shoes’ fifth studio album is a lairy procession of ‘90s-infused indie-rock songs that make great use of Laura-Mary Carter’s sexy, laconic burr. Created after the band fell out—and Carter promptly left for L.A.—the Brighton duo built bridges and got to work. The result is probably their best work since 2008’s ‘Box of Secrets’.
