CHECK OUT THE LATEST
Despite not yet being announced officially, it turns out the new disc is currently available for pre-orders on iTunes so we can happily tell you:
1. It’s called For Crying Out Loud
2. It’s packing 12 fresh tracks
3. It’s set to be released on Friday, 28th April, and
4. The deluxe edition will feature a bunch of extra songs which were recorded live at Leicester’s King Power Stadium
As you can see, the just-unlocked Track 2 from the record is called ‘You’re In Love With A Psycho’, and if you give it a spin below you’ll notice it’s packing one helluva toe-tapping beat, a sing-song chorus melody and some inoffensively distorted guitars that pick up in intensity (slightly) as the song progresses.
Kasabian’s Serge Pizzorno says the new album is stuffed with “big tunes, but there’s a little bit of madness in there”.
“It was banger time,” he says of the record’s tone, explaining that the whole thing is filled with good vibes despite being thrown together at a time when the state of the world seems a bit sombre.
“I was in a really good place and I made a really feel good record in a time when that’s not necessarily what it feels like,” he says (no word on whether ‘You’re In Love With A Psycho’ was in any way inspired by America’s relationship with Trump, though).
Interestingly, the new tune’s arrival comes just after Kasabian loftily announced that their forthcoming LP would “save guitar music from the the abyss! Because it’s gone”.
“They’re great songs to sing,” Pizzorno recently told Q (via NME).
It’ll be interesting to hear what else their new disc has to offer, because if you ask us the guitars in ‘You’re In Love With A Psycho’ are the least psycho guitars ever, turned down low in a friendly dance-pop mix. Still, a departure from the more experimental, electro shades of their last outing. Interesting.
