Fat White Family have confirmed the release of new album ‘Serfs Up!’ and shared first song ‘Feet’. Check it out below.
The new track, which can be heard below alongside imagery of the album sleeve, is described by the band as “As immaculately rendered as ‘Hounds Of Love’-era Kate Bush”.
The album is their first since 2016’s ‘Songs For Our Mothers’, since when the band had launched side-projects including The Moonlandingz and Insecure Men.
Out on April 19, ‘Serfs Up!’ is made with longtime collaborator Liam D May and features a guest appearance by Baxter Dury on ‘Tastes Good With The Money’. It’s their first album for new label Domino.
The album had been teased earlier this week with a trailer inspired by Game Of Thrones.
A statement says ‘Serfs Up!’ is “a lush and masterful work, lascivious and personal. Tropical, sympathetic and monumental, it invites the listener in rather than repel them through wilful abrasion. Fat White Family have broken previous default patterns of behaviour. As such, their third album heralds a new day dawning.”
Fat White Family’s new sound is further described as: “Where once they soundtracked grubby Britain of vape shops, Fray Bentos dinners and blackened tinfoil, a crepuscular comedown realm stalked by Shipman, Goebbels and Mark E Smith, Fat White Family now inhabit another cosmos entirely.”
‘Serfs Up!’ is available on CD, vinyl, download and streaming, as well as an exclusive heavyweight transparent red vinyl from Domino’s store with a poster. It can be pre-ordered here. There is as yet no confirmation of live shows.
The full tracklisting of ‘Serfs Up!’ is:
‘I Believe In Something Better’
‘Tastes Good With The Money’
‘When I Leave’
