The bombastic Kasabian return to our Sport Playlists this week, with a new single from their number one album ‘Bless This Acid House’. Listen to the new single now on the Shoot New Release Playlist!
The band are back with an explosive, career best album brimming with confidence, swagger and huge tunes on For Crying Out Loud, their sixth studio album. Written and produced by Kasabian wizard Serge Pizzorno, and recorded at the Sergery, his Leicester studio.
The album features 12 tracks that encapsulate everything that makes Kasabian one of this country’s best ever bands. Speaking on the new single, guitarist and songwriter Serge Pizzorno called it ‘one of the best tunes he’s ever written’. Said Serge of the new track:
“In May, the record was done but I’d never had any time off so I thought, ‘You know what? I’m going to have the summer off for the first time in my life’,” he said. “It was incredible. I got married, went on holiday for ages and just lived a bit. When I came back in September I decided to graffiti over everything. I’d done everything on an acoustic for the first time and had these beautiful, crafting tunes but started graffiting over the lot, just taking it to another level. I wrote another tune, which is incredible, and then two weeks later I wrote one of the best tunes I’ve ever written.”
“[It’s called] ‘Bless This Acid House’. It’s a beauty. It’s a mad time, with what’s been happening – it felt like the world was caving in around me. But I felt that everyone had said enough, like everyone had had their say, so this tune is just pure positive energy. I went round my mate’s house and he’s got this (Jeremy Deller-designed) poster and I thought, ‘I love that’, so I wrote a tune about it.”
