Stereophonics have revved up their comeback by uncovering their latest single ‘Caught By The Wind’ – and you can listen to it now on the Shoot Music – New Releases Playlist.
The track is the second to preview their new album ‘Scream Above The Sounds’ (released October 27) after its lead single ‘All In One Night’ was previously premiered by Chris Evans on BBC Radio 2.
When ‘Scream Above The Sounds’ first started to take shape, frontman Kelly Jones began to write “big, anthemic songs” that deliver a positive message in a time full of unrelenting negative news.
‘Caught By The Wind’ is the opening track on ‘Scream Above The Sounds’ which was primarily recorded in the band’s HQ in west London with a further session at RAK Studios. Created with the help of regular collaborator Jim Lowe, it’s an album in which creative sonic touches add to the band’s emphasis on songwriting and melody.
Their tenth studio album, ‘Scream Above The Sounds’ follows ‘Keep The Village Alive’ which went straight to #1 when it was released in 2015 – their sixth chart-topper after ‘Performance and Cocktails’ (1999), ‘Just Enough Education To Perform’ (2001) ‘You Gotta Go There To Come Back’ (2003), ‘Language. Sex. Violence. Other?’ (2005) and ‘Pull The Pin’ (2007).
the band have also been on the festival circuit this summer, with headline performances at Kendal Calling, Y Not, Victorious and, most recently, Radio 2 Live in Hyde Park.
The band consists of Kelly Jones (vocals/guitar), who will be hoping his band’s comeback is successful as his beloved Leeds United’s start to the 2017/18 season, Richard Jones (bass), Adam Zindani (guitar) and Jamie Morrison (drums). Long-term keyboardist Tony Kirkham also joins the line-up for live shows.
