Teenage Fanclub announce new album 'Endless Arcade'

Following on from the release of their highly-praised 2016 LP 'Here', Teenage Fanclub have now returned to announce the details behind their next studio album, arriving early next year.

The new full-length 'Endless Arcade' will feature the previously shared cut 'Everything Is Falling Apart', alongside the newly unveiled lead single 'Home', and is set to be released on the 5th March via PeMa/Merge Records.

Speaking about the recording, the band's Raymond McGinley said, "I think of an endless arcade as a city that you can wander through, with a sense of mystery, an imaginary one that goes on forever… When it came to choosing an album title, it seemed to have something for this collection of songs.

"The process is much the same as it always has been. In 1989 we went into a studio in Glasgow to make our first LP. Francis starts setting up his drums, the rest of us find our spots around him and off we go. Thirty years later Francis is setting up his drums in Clouds Hill Recordings in Hamburg. A few hours later we’re recording the first song. We don’t conceptualise, we don’t talk about it, we just do it. Each of us are thinking our own thoughts, but we don’t do much externalising. We just feel our way into it."

While bandmate Norman Blake added, "We were very comfortable with each other in the studio. I think some of the playing is a bit freer and looser than on recent albums. Dave and Euros’ playing is amazing, and Francis on drums is really swinging. The whole process of making this album was very invigorating. Everyone in the band contributed a lot and the song arrangements came together really quickly. Everything felt fresh."
