“Definitely the best album we've done since La Petite Mort!”
Saul Davies | James
New album out now
Saul Davies | James
Hi there everybody,
Jim here to announce, drum roll please...........The release of our 14th album, titled 'Girl At The End Of The World' or if you prefer 'GATEOTW' or even just 'Girl'.
The songs for this record were written exclusively in Scotland. Not for any particular reason but still a fact. If you pay close attention whilst you're listening, in a couple of places you can actually smell peat burning mixed with the salty tang of seaweed on the air. Also, possibly bagpipes but that might be just my tinnitus playing up.
As with 'La Petite Mort', the album was recorded at the lovely Rak Studios in St. John's Wood. I've spent so much time there over the last couple of years, I feel I should buy a Bentley Convertible and a pair of white Gucci loafers.
And again, recorded and produced by the eternally patient Max Dingel. Why do you do it Max? Surely there must be an easier way to earn a living?
All that said, 'Girl At The End Of The World' is a record we are very proud of and picks up nicely where 'La Petite Mort' left off. But hopefully, as always, pushes the edges out a little further. The songs are big but personal, abrasive but warming and after taking you on a journey and throwing you a few curve balls, ultimately uplifting. So remember, 'Girl At The End Of The World'.
But the excitement doesn't stop there. I know, I can barely contain myself either. Ladies and Gentlemen we have a UK Tour to announce. A whole bunch of gigs next May, where we will of course be treating you and ourselves to the joys of the new album and of course, a whole heap of other James stuff to boot. So get your tickets early to avoid disappointment.
There will be festivals being announced and loads of fun promo stuff happening including single releases and videos, so keep an eye on James social media to find out what/where/when.
Thank you for listening and thanks in advance for your support. And remember, without you lot, we'd just be a bunch of bewildered, grumpy old men arguing with each other in an empty stadium.
Hope to see you on the road,
