Listen as Sleaford Mods share new song ‘I Can Tell’

Song from new EP 'TCR' is for ‘The discerning skeptic’

Sleaford Mods have unveiled new song ‘I Can Tell’.

The song is the second to be shared from the duo’s forthcoming EP ‘TCR’, following the title track.

Vocalist Jason Williamson said of ‘I Can Tell’: “It’s basic politics for the discerning skeptic. The streets are cold, and they’re squeezing us until we pop. Low earners first, then it’s onto the middle lot. We’re fucked.”


Sleaford Mods signed to new label Rough Trade earlier this year, and will release their first album for the label in 2017. It will be Williamson and keyboardist Andrew Fearns’ first full album since their eighth record ‘Key Markets’ was released in 2015.

‘TCR’ is released tomorrow (October 14) and also features three other songs in addition to the title track and ‘I Can Tell’ – ‘Britain First’, ‘Dad’s Corner’ and ‘You’re A Nottshead’. It’s followed by a tour starting next week.

Iggy Pop recently proclaimed Sleaford Mods: “Undoubtedly, absolutely, definitely the world’s greatest rock & roll band.”
