UK band James returns with new music

Here's the latest news on one of my favorite bands. Here's hoping they tour the U.S. this time for it...

UK band James has announced 14th studio album “Girl At The End Of The World” is scheduled for North America on March 18.

Two singles have been revealed: “To My Surprise” came last month (watch the official video here) and more recently, “Nothing But Love.” Both tracks are available now on Spotify, Amazon (CD, Vinyl & MP3) and on iTunes as part of a pre-order of “Girl At The End Of The World.” 

“Girl At The End Of The World” sees the band team again with producer Max Dingel (The Killers, Muse, White Lies). James' current single “Nothing But Love” is a rarity in the James canon. 
“Love songs tend to tread such a well-worn path that I avoid them unless I have something new to say or I’m so blinded by emotion I can’t help myself,” says singer/lyricist Tim Booth.
“It’s about love’s euphoria and ecstasy – that love-bomb that goes off and changes everything. But love is a high-stakes game, as something you love can also be lost,” he explains.

Like much of “Girl At The End Of The World,” the single was cut live in RAK Studio and it contains a touch of “Enoxification” from the band’s former mentor Brian Eno, who has produced five James albums.

James are both critically acclaimed and commercially successful, having sold over 12 million albums worldwide. The band originally signed to the iconic Factory Records in 1982, and have since gone onto produce a string of hit singles, including "Sit Down," "Come Home," "She’s A Star" and "Born of Frustration."
