Bombay Bicycle Club Share Fourth Track From Upcoming New Album

Bombay Bicycle Club are pleased to welcome in 2020 with a fourth track from their upcoming fifth album, Everything Else Has Gone Wrong. The album is released via Caroline International/Island Records on the January 17, and is preceded today with “I Can Hardly Speak”

As its title suggests, “I Can Hardly Speak” is a song about struggling to express yourself in words. It pulls together all those unusual sounds, textures and metronomic loops that are almost signature to Bombay Bicycle Club records now, and should act as another tantalising teaser to the full record due later this month, and the shows that follow it.

Largely written in Cornwall and recorded out in the US alongside Grammy Award winning producer John Congleton (St. Vincent/Sharon Van Etten/War on Drugs), Bombay Bicycle Club have continued to grow, develop and evolve since the release of their debut album, I Had The Blues But I Shook Them Loose, back in 2009. Rarely in recent years has there been a British guitar band who have the craft and ability to avoid categorisation whilst uniting hundreds of thousands of fans across the globe. With an innate ear for melody and invention, the four-piece are a very welcome return to the fold just as British guitar music makes a timely renaissance.

Bombay Bicycle Club welcome the new album’s release with a full tour of the UK in later this month and into February. The shows kick off on the 20th January at Cambridge Corn Exchange and wrap up at Ulster Hall in Belfast on the 12th February. The run includes two nights at London’s Alexandra Palace, with many of those shows long since sold out and with only a handful of tickets left at the remaining dates. A busy Summer festival season is almost inevitable. US dates will be announced soon.
