The Vaccines have unveiled the tracklisting and artwork for their forthcoming second album ‘The Vaccines Come Of Age’, which will be released on September 3.
Speaking to NME about the album, the band’s singer Justin Young has said: “I don’t think there’s any danger of us making the same record twice. But I think anything people found attractive about us the first time round has been retained. I’m really confident we’ve got the balance right.” He added:
I wanted to look inwards with this record. Honesty goes a long way in music and it’s therapeutic. There’s a lot about the way I’m feeling. One minute you’re a shit-kicking 21-year-old and the next you’re playing a song you’ve written in front of 20,000 people chanting your name. But that’s tongue-in-cheek too, it’s not me taking myself completely seriously.
The tracklisting for ‘The Vaccines Come Of Age’ is as follows:
‘I Always Knew’
‘All In Vain’
‘Change Of Heart pt.2.’
‘I Wish I Was A Girl’
The album has been produced by Ethan Johns, who has previously worked on albums by the likes of Kings Of Leon, Laura Marling and Tom Jones. You can read NME‘s review of the album’s lead-off single’No Hope’ now at NME.COM.
