~ Foolish Loving Spaces ~
The band’s highly anticipated third album will be out January 31, 2020, on Virgin EMI Records.
Blossoms have today revealed the details of their new album, ‘Foolish Loving Spaces’. Set for release on January 31, 2020, ‘Foolish Loving Spaces’ is the follow up to the band’s 2018, top 5 album ‘Cool Like You’ and features recent single ‘Your Girlfriend’, released earlier this year.
‘Foolish Loving Spaces’ was produced by the band’s consistent and talented team of James Skelly and Rich Turvey at Parr Street Studios in Liverpool. Tom Ogden’s increasingly direct lyrical range turns album three into a romantic page-turner of light and shade, while its divergent moods are supplied by Myles Kellock’s piano and keyboard lines, careering from urgent stabs of TV game show-theme synth to more classic, rolling notes. The record’s multi-instrumental colour and widescreen sound is provided by pedal steel / lead guitarist Josh Dewhurst, while Joe Donovan on drums and Charlie Salt on bass bring fluidly danceable grooves throughout, complemented on occasion by a wall of gospel harmony.
Speaking about the inspiration for the album, the band explains:
The album is a pure celebration of love in all of its splendid and baffling guises, toying with the so-called sins of lust and forbidden infatuation. It’s inspired by a summer spent listening to ‘Stop Making Sense’, ‘The Joshua Tree’ & ‘Screamadelica’.
