Idlewild Line Up Spring Release For New Album 'Interview Music' And Plot Accompanying Tour Dates

Friday, 08 February 2019 Written by Jon Stickler

Idlewild have announced the release of their first album in four years.

The Scottish band will put out 'Interview Music' on April 5, following up 2015's 'Everything Ever Written', which was recorded after a lengthy hiatus. The band slipped away to Los Angeles to flesh out ideas for album number eight before returning to their hometown of Edinburgh to complete it at guitarist Rod Jones' own studio. Vocalist Roody Woomble said:

"A lot of the songs are about dreams and dreaming and the thoughts and ideas that come from this state. I live in the Scottish Highlands, and between there and California you’ve got two locations that can put you in a dream like state – driving down Sunset Boulevard as the sun sets or driving over the remote Ardnamurchan peninsula as the sun rises. The world seems unreal, magical. You’re dreaming through a landscape."

To celebrate the news, the band have shared the album's cover art, tracklist and first single, Dream Variations. They'll also tour the UK shortly after the release, with tickets on general sale at 10am on February 15. 

'Interview Music' tracklist:

1. Dream Variations
2. There’s A Place For Everything
3. Interview Music
4. All These Words
5. You Wear It Second Hand
6. Same Things Twice
7. I Almost Didn’t Notice
8. Miracles
9. Mount Analogue
10. Forever New
11. Bad Logic

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.
