James Announce New Album + Release New Single 'Is This Love'
James have announced details of their new album to be released on 12 April via Virgin Music and available to pre-order from 25 January.
'Yummy' is the band’s 18th studio album and was produced by Leo Abrahams (Brian Eno, Jarvis Cocker, Jon Hopkins, Imogen Heap, Regina Spektor) and mixed by Cenzo Townsend (Courteeners, The Specials, Everything Everything).
The first single from the record, 'Is This Love', is the album’s string-swept opener, blending cutting edge synthetics with quintessential James anthemics, as complex a dissection of love in all its forms as singer Tim Booth pores over the pain, heat, battle, distance, fear, release and endurance of this emotion, in pursuit of its point and purpose. “Love as a bomb,” says Tim, “a Tsunami that rolls over our life as we cling to the wreckage of our peace of mind”.
