James Announce New Studio Album Ahead of 2024 Tour
On the 15th January, James announced details of their new album to be released on 12th April via Virgin Music, available to pre-order from 25th January. Yummy is the band’s 18th studio album and is produced by Leo Abrahams (Jon Hopkins, Brian Eno, Jarvis Cocker, Imogen Heap and Regina Spektor) and mixed by Cenzo Townsend (Courteeners, The Specials, Everything Everything).
The first single taken from the new album is ‘Is This Love’, the album’s string-swept opener, it blends cutting edge synthetics with the quintessential James anthem, as complex a dissection of love in all its forms with Tim poring over the pain, heat, battle, distance, fear, release and endurance of this emotion, in pursuit of its point and purpose.
Tim Booth says “Love as a bomb, a Tsunami that rolls over our life as we cling to the wreckage of our peace of mind’.
Listen to ‘Is This Love’ here.
The album and lead single’s artwork has been art directed and designed by Studio Fury who have a rich history of creating iconic album covers, including art directing the campaign for the Rolling Stones' latest album, ‘Hackney Diamonds’.
Full details for the album including tracklist, formats and artwork to follow in the coming weeks.
