With their long awaited fourth album dropping in just over a fortnight, Dubstar continue to build up to its release by sharing the record’s latest single ‘Love Comes Late’.
A glorious stain on the bed linen of British pop culture and the last word on decadent, bittersweet, electro-pop, Dubstar‘s latest single is the follow up to the surprise release of ‘Waltz No.9′ back in the June.
‘Love Comes Late’ is an etherial track that features an easy bass guitar groove and a chilled yet anxious chorus. The song features its protagonist in the midst of a mid-life crisis, finding love when almost too old to appreciate it.
Listen to ‘Love Comes Late’ by Dubstar on Shoot Music’s New Releases Playlist on Spotify.
Both singles come from the album ‘One’ – their first new material in 17 years. Produced by Killing Joke bassist Youth (The Verve, U2, The Charlatans), the new record will be released on September 28 on Northern Writes.
Comprised of Sarah Blackwood and Chris Wilkie, Dubstar formed in Newcastle upon Tyne in 1993 and signed to Food Records at the height of the Britpop era.
They had eight Top 40 singles (including Not So Manic Now and Stars) and three hugely successful albums (including Disgraceful, Goodbye and Make It Better) in the 1990s before splitting in 2000.
As of yet, the duo have no plans to tour the new record.
