Upon sharing the details of ‘As The Love Continues’ in October, Mogwai offered a first taste of the album with the single ‘Dry Fantasy’.
Other song titles from the project include ‘Here We, Here We, Here We Go Forever’, ‘Pat Stains’, ‘Fuck Off Money’ and ‘Supposedly, We Were Nightmares’. You can see the full tracklist below.
The album was recorded in Worcestershire with producer Dave Fridmann during the coronavirus pandemic, after plans to record in the United States of America were shelved due to travel restrictions.
The ‘As The Love Continues’ tracklist is as follows:
1. To The Bin My Friend, Tonight We Vacate Earth
2. Here We, Here We, Here We Go Forever
3. Dry Fantasy
4. Ritchie Sacramento
5. Drive The Nail
6. Fuck Off Money
7. Ceiling Granny
8. Midnight Flit
9. Pat Stains
10. Supposedly, We Were Nightmares
11. It’s What I Want To Do, Mum
Back in September, Mogwai became one of the first bands to cancel a 2021 tour due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. They had been scheduled to play a string of UK shows back in February but decided to cancel the dates, citing “the safety of fans and crew”.
