THE CORAL TAKE FUNNY TURN!

The "light-hearted" follow-up to 'Magic & Medicine' will be with us very soon...

Coral have revealed more details about their forthcoming limited edition third album, which is due for release on January 26.

The as-yet-untitled follow-up to the band’s Number One LP ‘Magic & Medicine’ will feature the tracks ‘Venom Cable’, ‘Grey Harpoon’, and ‘I Forgot My Name’ as well as the already confirmed ‘Migraine’ and ‘Sorrow For A Song’.

Singer James Skelly told NME.COM: “It was quite a spontaneous record – we recorded it live over two weeks. Pretty much all of the vocals and the guitar parts were done on the first take. It’s quite light-hearted – we’re not taking ourselves too seriously. There’s a bit of humour in it.”

The album was produced by Lightning Seeds’ Ian Broudie and was recorded in Bryn Derwen, Wales, two months ago.

As previously announced on NME.COM, the band head out on a UK tour later this month, finishing with two ‘hometown’ shows at Liverpool Royal Court on December 19 and 20. A new date has also just been added, at Warrington Parr Hall on December 9. Tickets go sale tomorrow (November 13).
