Squeeze make long awaited reunion album, songwriters tour America

Over the years there have been solo careers and occasional separations, but the songwriting duo Chris Difford and Glenn Tilbrook are stronger now than they’ve ever been.

“We reformed Squeeze in 2007,” says Glenn. “Things went so well, here we are eight years later. Four years ago we agreed that if we were to carry on, we really needed to work on new material.”

The result is "
Cradle To The Grave," their first album of new songs together since 1998. It is due out Nov. 13.

Listen to first single: “Happy Days” 
Chris' lyrics and Glenn's music have prevailed through turbulent times over the past four decades, from the ever-changing musical landscape to their own internal reshuffles and an acrimonious break-up.
In addition the pair will head to the U.S. in November and December for ‘The At Odds Couple’ Tour – seeing Glenn and Chris reflecting on their careers, as part of Squeeze and as solo artists, sharing not only the music but also giving an insight in to what makes the two of them tick as a partnership.

Chris says of their fresh songs: “We’ve grown up a lot in the last few years, musically. We still love and own our past, but as musicians we needed to grow.”

Squeeze have released 13 studio albums – ‘Squeeze’ (’78), ‘Cool For Cats’ (’79), ‘Argybargy’ (’80), ‘East Side Story’ (’81), ‘Sweets From A Stranger’ (’82), ‘Cosi Fan Tutti Frutti’ (’85), ‘Babylon And On’ (’87), ‘Frank’ (’89), ‘Play’ (’91), ‘Some Fantastic Place’ (’93), ‘Ridiculous’ (’95), ‘Domino’ (’98) and the re-recording of their classic hits ‘Spot The Difference’ (‘10).
