The Courteeners have debuted their new single ‘No One Will Ever Replace Us’ exclusively on NME this morning. Scroll down to listen.
Frontman Liam Fray says of the song: “It’s about finding love in the unlikely surroundings of Glastonbury. There’s almost an under-pinning fear about when you’ve got something so good, and you don’t want it to end.”
‘No One Will Ever Replace Us’ is available to download now or as an instant grat track for fans who pre-order the band’s upcoming fifth album, ‘Mapping The Rendezvous’. The album, the band’s follow-up to 2014 set ‘Concrete Love’, will drop on October 21.
The 11-track album was produced by Joe Cross, penned in Paris and recorded in Bath, Loch Ness and Manchester. ‘No One Will Replace Us’ is the second song the band have shared from the album following ‘The 17th’ in August.
Speaking ahead of the album’s release, Liam Fray said: “[The period] after the second and third record can be really difficult because you’ve got to prove you can sit at the top table. I feel like we’ve weathered that storm and we might be getting a second opportunity. We feel really lucky to be on our fifth album.”
