The record follows on from 2013 debut 'Where The Heaven Are We'
Swim Deep have confirmed details of their second album release.
Having already released a number of tracks from the LP, the Birmingham band have now announced ‘Mothers’ for release on September 19 via Chess Club/RCA.
A press release states that the group, now a fivepiece with the addition of multi-instrumentalist James Balmont, recorded the album in both London and Brussels. The record is described as a “marked departure” from their 2013 debut ‘Where The Heaven Are We’.
Singer Austin Williams says: “We’ve made a record, we’ve worked hard and we’re dead proud of it. We’ve called it ‘Mothers’ as a nod to the true creators of the universe and we couldn’t be more enthusiastic about this next chapter.”
The tracklist is as below:
‘One Great Song And I Could Change The World ‘
‘To My Brother’
‘Is There Anybody Out There’
Williams has also revealed the ambitions he and his bandmates had for the album. “We wanted to radicalise chart music,” he said. “So we’ve taken [Kanye West’s] ‘Yeezus’ and [Fleetwood Mac album] ‘Rumours’ and put them together with acid house.”
