Tindersticks : New World : New Single

May 14, 2024

Reveal 'New World' Song & Video!

Tindersticks announce Upcoming Album 'Soft Tissue' for release on September 13th, 2024

Five years after No Treasure but Hope (2019) and three years after 2021’s Distractions, Tindersticks return with new album ‘Soft Tissue’ to be released on City Slang on October 13th 2024.

“New World”, the first track written for Soft Tissue and a springboard for the album’s thematic concerns about personal/public worlds knocked off-kilter. The arrangements pick up close to where 2016’s The Waiting Room left off and steer the record into febrile terrain, balanced between the bandletting loose, Julian Siegel’s brass arrangements, Dan McKinna’s string arrangements and Gina Foster’s soulful backing vocals. Meanwhile, Staples’s introspective reflections lead to a refrain that takes a more outward-looking slant, flagged up on a banner in the song’s playful promo video: “I won’t let my love become my weakness.” The video, as well as the albums sleeve made with Staples’ artist daughter Sidonie Osborne Staples.

Staples - “Sid was making these tiny ceramic characters, I asked her to make some of the band. Later I wrote this song ’New world’ about somehow trying make sense of this strange world I felt developing around me and these little guys came back into my mind - Lets take them on a stop motion journey across a strange land, from the barren rocks to the bountiful fruit that is not familiar and maybe poisonous (the Durian fruit smelled pretty bad, they are not allowed on busses in some parts of the world!) Sid put the landscapes together and moved the figures, millimetres at a time. Neil took the photographs, we edited as went along”

The album is available for pre-order now 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: http://tindersticks.lnk.to/SoftTissue
