Circa Waves announce new double album 'Sad Happy'

Despite already returning this year to deliver their heavily-praised third LP 'What's It Like Over There?' in April, Circa Waves are back once again to announce their plans for a new double album, arriving next year.

The new full-length 'Sad Happy' is being previewed by the new lead single 'Jacqueline', and will be split into two halves with the first side 'Happy' arriving on the 10th January, while 'Sad' will be dropping on the 13th March, both via Prolifica Inc /[PIAS].

Speaking about their new record, the band's Kieran Shudall said, "We live in a world split into two extreme halves. One moment you’re filled with the existential crisis of climate doom and the next you’re distracted by another piece of inconsequential content that has you laughing aloud. I find this close proximity of immense sadness and happiness so jarring, bizarre and fascinating. Our brains rattle back and forth through emotions at such a rate that happiness and sadness no longer feel mutually exclusive. This idea was the blueprint for Sad Happy and is the theme that underpins the album. Sad Happy is written in my Liverpool home, it’s also hugely inspired by my surroundings and the love I have for the city. It runs through thoughts on mortality, love and observations of people."
