Bombay Bicycle Club are pleased to share the title track from their forthcoming fifth album, ‘Everything Else Has Gone Wrong’.
The album is released via Caroline International/Island Records on the January 17 2020, and is the band’s first in five years.
‘Everything Else Has Gone Wrong’ was the last song to be written for Bombay Bicycle Club‘s fifth album, and it makes perfect sense that it gives the record its name. “It seemed to encapsulate everything the album is about,” says singer/guitarist Jack Steadman.
Listen to ‘Everything Else Has Gone Wrong’ by Bombay Bicycle Club on the Official F1 Tracks playlist on Spotify.
Like the album, the song is about hope and renewal, about finding safety in what brings you comfort, in what you love the most, while all around is crumbling.
The record was largely written in Cornwall and recorded out in the US alongside Grammy Award winning producer John Congleton (St. Vincent/Sharon Van Etten/War on Drugs). It features the band’s euphoric returning single, ‘Eat, Sleep, Wake (Nothing But You)’.
Bombay Bicycle Club have continued to grow, develop and evolve since the release of their debut album, I Had The Blues But I Shook Them Loose, back in 2009 when they signalled their arrival as young teenagers.
Rarely in recent years has there been a British guitar band who have the craft and ability to avoid categorisation whilst uniting hundreds of thousands of fans across the globe. With an innate ear for melody and invention, the four-piece are a very welcome return to the fold just as British guitar music makes a timely renaissance.
