Bombay Bicycle Club confirm 'So Long, See You Tomorrow' album details
Band will release their fourth album on February 3 next year
The London band will release their fourth album on February 3 and have today (December 4) confirmed details of the record, including release date and tracklisting. You can see the album artwork, inspired by the work of groundbreaking 19th century photographer Eadweard Muybridge, above. The band will also preview some songs from the new album at an exclusive intimate gig on December 13 at Abbey Road Studios.
Speaking to NME, frontman Jack Steadman recently revealed how exploring the globe helped him personally, as well as providing influence for new songs.
"I think the travelling gave me a sense of wellbeing rather than any direct musical influence," Steadman says. "Also, we were getting more inspired by samples. They become the springboard for your song and, whether it’s an Indian song or something with Thai chanting, you should never deny that inspiration just because it sounds silly or because the thought of it is weird."
