June 17, 2024 Today, Tindersticks released a new single “Nancy” (stream HERE) from their forthcoming album Soft Tissue out September 13th. 

Soft Tissue is now available for pre-order on all formats as well as an exclusive limited edition vinyl bundle including a special 7” New World / Falling the Light available from City Slang.

About the new single, Stuart Staples explains: “Some say that there are only a few different types of songs. Nancy definitely falls in to the classic ’guy fucks up / begs for forgiveness’ bracket - but hopefully with a few surprises along the way. Like much of Soft Tissue, the musical spark of excitement came from the creation of the rhythm track - Earl Harvin gated, echoed and fused with a CR78. Dan McKinna’s bass and David Boulter’s organ arpeggios combining into a heavy sauce. Nice brass too.”

“Nancy” follows the release of “New World,” the first song written for Soft Tissue and a springboard for the album’s thematic concerns about personal and public worlds knocked off-kilter. The single was praised by Stereogum, Under The Radar, and BrooklynVegan, who named it one of the best songs of May, and proclaimed, “‘New World’ opens with blasts of horns, and you might think you put on a Charles Bradley record by mistake, but then in comes Staples’ voice and you know where you are. It’s such a natural fit, especially in the chorus with its killer backing vocals, that you wonder why Tindersticks never went there before.”
