Blossoms discover 'Foolish Loving Spaces'

Blossoms was among my highlights of Coachella '17, so I can't wait to hear the new material.

As their North American tour approaches, British chart-topping, award-winning, five-piece band Blossoms have revealed the title, artwork, track-listing and release date for their third studio full-length.

Foolish Loving Spaces [pre-order HERE] is to be released on January 31, 2020 [Avenue A/Virgin EMI] and will feature 10 new tracks including the previously released ‘Your Girlfriend’ [listen HERE].

The album was produced by the band’s usual team of James Skelly and Rich Turvey at Parr Street Studios in Liverpool. Speaking about the inspiration for the album, the band explains: “The album is a pure celebration of love in all of its splendid and baffling guises, toying with the so-called sins of lust and forbidden infatuation. It’s inspired by a summer spent listening to ‘Stop Making Sense’, ‘The Joshua Tree’ and ‘Screamadelica’.”

Next month, starting in Washington, D.C on Nov. 5, the Stockport five-piece will be joined by Dublin band Inhaler as support, and will be making stops in Brooklyn, NY, Toronto, Chicago, San Francisco and Los Angeles for their headlining tour. For more information and tickets go to:

Following a sold out North American tour back in 2017 -- including critically acclaimed appearances at Coachella Festival in California and Lollapalooza in Chicago – Blossoms have gone on to amass almost a quarter-of-a-billion combined global streams, with North America being their second biggest market in the world.

Since forming in 2013, Blossoms have enjoyed widespread success and acclaim. Their 2016 debut full length topped the album charts for two consecutive weeks and went on to earn the band BRIT Award and Mercury Prize nominations, while 2018’s Cool Like You charted at number 4 in the UK album chart, spawning anthemic singles such as I Can’t Stand It, There’s A Reason Why (I Never Returned Your Calls) and How Long Will This Last?

In other news, Blossoms launched their ‘Blossoms Pubcast’ this year. The podcast, which has topped the iTunes podcast charts, is based at The Blossoms in Stockport - the pub that gave the band their name. [Listen on Apple and Spotify).
