After returning with their brilliant collaboration with Wu-Tang Clan on 'Hi' near the end of last year, Texas have now announced their plans for a new studio album, arriving later next month.
The new full-length, also called 'Hi', will feature special guests Richard Hawley and Clare Grogan of Altered Images, is being previewed by the new track 'Mr Haze', and is set to be released on the 28th May via BMG.
Back in 2018 Sharleen Spiteri and bass guitarist Johnny McElhone found some outtakes from the original ‘White on Blonde’ sessions that they forgot existed. Initially they thought these undiscovered gems could be released as a ‘lost’ album but listening to the tracks inspired them to write some really strong new material.
Speaking about the new collection, they said, “Our excitement at finding this treasure trove of songs collided with our excitement back then and, unplanned, new songs started coming. You could say we were inspired by ourselves!”
