Idlewild have revealed the second single then from their forthcoming album Interview Music.
‘Same Things Twice’ takes the fire of the heavier highlights like ‘A Modern Way Of Letting Go’ and ‘Little Discourage’, but carries it with a more mature grace.
Having taken a break in 2010 (the previous 15 years seeing them turn from raucous cult curiosity to chart bothering national treasures) friendship and the bind of their creativity brought Idlewild back together for 2015’s Everything Ever Written.

With it, came critical praise, an album in the top 20, and the band selling out venues as large as they ever had. With new members Luciano Rossi and Andrew Mitchell on board, Roddy Woomble, guitarist Rod Jones and drummer Colin Newton felt a renewed sense of purpose. So much so that the week that Everything Ever Written was released, they were already back at the drawing board to start work on what would become the bold step sidewards, forthcoming album Interview Music.
Inspired, they later decamped at the end at the end of a US tour in 2016 to Los Angeles to flesh out their ideas, but it would be some years before they set themselves up at Jones’ own Edinburgh studio to finish the record.
