Spector have unveiled new single ‘Another Life’
Another cut taken from their recently announced new album ‘Here Come the Early Nights’, ‘Another Life’ is an acoustic-led ode to a parallel universe, exploring a multitude of other situations that could occur if only in a different set of circumstances.
Elaborating on the track, vocalist Fred Macpherson explains, “‘Another Life’ is one of the most upbeat tracks on Here Come the Early Nights, but still makes sense in the album’s sunset universe. We wrote it with our old friend Fyfe (aka Paul Dixon) who opened on Spector’s first ever tour and was in bands with Jed as a teenager, so it’s a nice full circle moment. Lyrically it’s about falling out with people you’re close to as a result of loyalty to others – a kind of daydream about what we’re doing here and what everything would be like in different contexts/circumstances/universes. I hate the word mature but we must be getting old because we left the acoustic guitar in.”
Guitarist Jed Cullen adds, “Paul (Fyfe) and I would write songs in school and if we were feeling brave ask each other if they were good or bad. He was probably the first person I started to talk to about this awkward songwriting thing, Looking back a lot of those songs were probably bad, but this one is a good one.”
Spanning ten glistening tracks, ‘Here Come the Early Nights’ is Spector at their most complete. Embracing new musical turns that call to mind ABBA, Blur, Sam Fender, Blossoms and Nick Cave to name but a few, it’s a classic British-indie album in waiting – soundtracking the inevitable maturity from 20-something dreamer to 30-something… dreamer, all delivered with the band’s undeniable wit and charm. Touching upon a broad array of life topics with razor-sharp one-liners from frontman Fred Macpherson, ‘Here Come The Early Nights’ is the album Spector have been destined to make across a storied career which has seen them emerge not only as cult indie icons but your favourite band’s favourite band. It was produced by previous Spector collaborator Dimitri Tikovoi and mixed by Catherine Marks.
The record, due on 24th November 2023, will also be swiftly followed by a nine date headline UK tour which sees the band bring their formidable live-show to London, Manchester, Birmingham, Bristol, Edinburgh, Leeds and more along the way – tickets are on sale now.
