THE WATERBOYS' Brand New Double Album Is Out Today!
THE WATERBOYS RELEASE OUT OF ALL THIS BLUE
NEW DOUBLE ALBUM OUT TODAY
"At once lighthearted and cutting, Out Of All This Blue is a 23-track sonic collage – a midlife portrait of a songwriter who can’t stop churning out thought-provoking stanzas, even when he’s dabbling with crazy drum loops and pushing out psychedelic instrumentals with his fuzz-fiddlin’ right-hand Waterboy, Steve Wickham." - Huffington Post
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE New York, NY (September 8, 2017) – The Waterboys have released their brand new double album entitled Out Of All This Blue, out today via BMG. This is their debut album with BMG since recently signing with the label.
Produced by Mike Scott and recorded in Dublin and Tokyo, Out Of All This Blue is available on digital, double CD, and double LP formats, plus deluxe triple CD and LP packages, which include bonus tracks. CLICK HERE to order.
Out Of All This Blue is The Waterboys' most exploratory recording yet, comprising 23 songs with Mike Scott's trademark sharp lyrics set to pop music with echoes of classic R&B, country, soul and funk, underpinned by modern hip-hop production values and rhythms. String & brass sections were arranged and conducted by Trey Pollard of The Spacebomb Collective.
Of the record, Mike Scott explains: "Out Of All This Blue is 2/3 love and romance, and 1/3 stories and observations. I knew from the beginning I wanted to make a double album, and lucky for me - and I hope the listener - the songs just kept coming, and in pop colors."
Below, are the last videos for key album tracks "If The Answer Is Year" and "Payo Payo Chin." When watched together, "Payo Payo Chin" and "If The Answer Is Yeah" trace the story of the leading man (played by Clive Russell) meeting and pursuing the woman of his dreams.
