Saint Etienne release first new material in seven years - audio
Saint Etienne have put out their first new material since 2005's 'Tales From Turnpike House' album.

The trio, made up of Sarah Cracknell, Bob Stanley and Pete Wiggs, have made the song 'Tonight' available to download for a limited period of time from their website – www.saintetienne.com – before the single's official release on March 5. Scroll down to listen to the track.

Of the song, which is the first to be taken from their eighth album, their website says: "Like the album it's taken from, 'Tonight' is all about the primal and atavistic pull that all good pop music exerts, about how the unadulterated thrill of a great band or gig can sometimes feel like a hotline straight to your heart."

Produced by Xenomania's Tim Powell and mixed by Richard X, the single is, according to Bob Stanley of the band "about the anticipation of going to see your favourite group. For some reason, I imagine this show is at the Forum in Kentish Town. The whole album is about the power of pop, how it affects and shapes your life."
