The tracklist includes ‘Same Jeans’, ‘Wasted Little DJs’ and ‘Shock Horror’, as well as two new songs, ‘Kill Kyle’ and ‘Dirty Magazines’. Both are produced by longtime collaborator Owen Morris (Oasis, The Verve).
“Over the years there’s been four studio albums, thousands of gigs, too much vodka and loads of memories on this crazy rock n’ roll journey,” says vocalist Kyle Falconer. “So we wanted to create an album that was kinda like stopping and looking back over the years – with a few new tracks too. That’s the ‘Seven Year Setlist’.”
