Scottish veteran popsmiths TEENAGE FANCLUB are playing
around since 1989 with no intention to end their long journey.

On the contrary. The Glaswegians just announced album number 12.
NOTHING LASTS FOREVER will see the light of day on 22 September.

Norman Blake (vocals/guitar/co-songwriter): “The songs are definitely personal. You’re getting older, you’re going into the cupboard getting the black suit out more often. Thoughts of mortality and the idea of the light must have been playing on our minds a lot. These new songs are reflective of how I’m feeling now, coming out of that period. They’re fairly optimistic, there’s an acceptance of a situation and all of the experience that comes with that acceptance. When we write, it’s a reflection of our lives, which are pretty ordinary. We’re not extraordinary people, and normal people get older. There’s a lot to write about in the mundane. I love reading Raymond Carver. Very often there’s not a lot that happens in those stories, but they speak
to lived experience.”

First single FOREIGN LAND is a vintage TF humdinger.
Brisk, easygoing, jangly, 60s organs and with featherlight
Byrds vocals. Stay, guys.

Tune in.
