Return For The Waterboys
It’s been a longtime since Famous Last Words (FLW) has heard from The Waterboys but all that’s about to change as the band announce details of a new album and tour dates in Norway.
The forthcoming album from The Waterboys is titled ‘Out Of All This Blue’ and will be released via BMG Records, which is a first for the band. With the 8th September 2017 set as the official release date, the new album will be issued as a double LP, and was produced by the band’s frontman, Mike Scott, and recorded in Dublin and Tokyo
‘Out Of All This Blue’ is made up of 23 songs (all written by Mike Scott) with a variety of sources influencing the sounds making up the forthcoming album release consisting of classic rhythm and blues, country, funk and soul. Additionally, all brass and stringed instrumentation is arranged and directed by Trey Pollard from The Spacebomb Collective.
Speaking about the new double album Mike Scott said:
“Out Of All This Blue is 2/3 love and romance, 1/3 stories and observations. I knew from the beginning I wanted to make a double album, and lucky for me – and I hope the listener – the songs just kept coming, and in pop colours.”
