The Lathums frontman Alex Moore has revealed that his mother inspired the title for the band’s debut album ‘How Beautiful Life Can Be‘.
The first full-length LP from the Wigan band is set to arrive on September 24 via Island Records and comes after they recently shared the title track.
Speaking to The Daily Star, Moore said: “I was in the garden with the sun beating down on me thinking how good could life be despite the virus. Mum spurred on that inspiration, giving me some good one liners for the lyrics and giving me loads to think about for the song.”
He continued: “Seeing our names together will be a nice moment we can share forever. No matter what happens, we’ll always be there as joint songwriters. I’ll be really proud seeing those credits.”
The album was recorded at Liverpool’s Parr Street Studios and produced by The Coral‘s James Skelly and Chris Taylor.
The full tracklisting for ‘How Beautiful Life Can Be’ is:
1. ‘Circles Of Faith’
2. ‘I’ll Get By’
3. ‘Fight On’
4. ‘How Beautiful Life Can Be’
5. ‘The Great Escape’
6. I Won’t Lie’
7. ‘I See Your Ghost’
8. ‘Oh My Love’
9. ‘I’ll Never Forget The Time I Spent With You’
10. ‘I Know That Much’
