Stereophonics Line Up Autumn Release For New Album 'Kind', Share First Single Fly Like An Eagle

Thursday, 15 August 2019 Written by Jon Stickler

Stereophonics are back with a new song and details of their 11th studio album.

Fly Like An Eagle is the first track to be shared from the Welsh rockers' forthcoming album, 'Kind', which is due for release on October 25 via Parlophone Records. The song is accompanied by a touching coming-of-age video shot by Charlotte Regan and starring Peaky Blinders actor Charlie Creed-Miles. Take a look below.

The follow up to 2017's 'Scream Above The Sounds' was recorded in 11 days at the Distillery, Wiltshire, using minimal studio techniques and technology, giving a stripped back, raw sound to the band's new material. It was co-produced by vocalist Kelly Jones alongside George Drakoulias. Jones said:

"Our last gig of the world tour was September 2018, in Brooklyn - I was done, had written no songs, nothing new, I thought I felt like quitting for a while. Then by November I had a load of songs that just came through me, lyrics just filling up pages, no crossings out, complete songs formed.

"They became a very open and to be honest, bunch of really vulnerable songs about things I hadn’t quite worked out for myself, the songs began to inform me how I was feeling. I didn’t know, or really mind if others wanted to hear them or like them, I just needed to get them out of me. So when it came to an album, I wanted to just capture honest performances of them and we recorded the album in just 11 days.

"Fly like an Eagle was one of the first I wrote and I feel it covers a lot of ground on the record and the line came, ‘wanna fly like an eagle, and dare to reborn’  - not in a religious sense but it’s about changing and growth, and learning not relying on the comfort zones of your life. And as people we all morph into new and different versions of ourselves. We don’t have to stay the same."

Details of a forthcoming Stereophonics tour are to be announced in the coming weeks.

1. I Just Wanted The Goods

Coldplay - Everyday Life (Album Review)
Tue 26 Nov 2019
Coldplay’s first record in four years is a double LP, allowing these British world-beaters to experiment more with instrumentals, ditties and their signature attempts at stadium bangers. The result is an occasionally fantastic album that wears its earnestness as brazenly as ever, and which even dabbles directly in politics with mixed results.
