Razorlight Return With New Single Call Me Junior

Friday, 17 June 2022 Written by Jon Stickler

Razorlight are back with a new song.

Call Me Junior arrives via Atlantic Culture Records/Absolute, and grew from a Skype writing session between frontman Johnny Borrell and drummer Andy Burrows.

Propelled by a driving drum beat, the uptempo guitar-pop track marks the band's first release since the reunion of their classic line-up of Borrell, Burrows, Björn Ågren, and Carl Dalemo, following a 10-year break. Borrell said:

"I had dreamt something, and Andy sent me a very rough voice note. I fused the 2 ideas together and we kind of had a song."

He continued: "It's a funny thing rediscovering Razorlight; normally when writing, you find yourself thinking 'this sounds kinda Bowie-ish or Stones-ish or Prince-ish etc - that's cool lets do that', but with getting back into an old writing partnership you start going 'Oh that sounds really Razorlight-ish, cool lets do that.' It's great to be recording again, great to be producing, and great to have the band back together. It's a unique sound these four people make."

Burrows added: "I rang Johnny, played some chords and a bit of melody that I had, down the phone, the next day I walked into the studio, and he was sat at the piano playing this finished song…as soon as we played it together with the band, it clicked. An instant rocker, like an old friend. We wanted to put something out ourselves, before we play live shows this summer, and this seemed like the perfect fit."

This summer, the group will play festival dates across the UK, including Standon Calling, Splendour In Nottingham, and Camp Bestival.
