Young Fathers have shared plans for new album ‘Heavy Heavy’.
The Scottish three-piece recently signalled their return, unleashing their almighty new single ‘Geronimo’. The group last released a full studio album in 2018 with the acclaimed ‘Cocoa Sugar’; their 2014 album ‘DEAD’ swept the Mercury.
Out on February 3rd, ‘Heavy Heavy’ ends the long wait for new material, and it will be accompanied by a full UK tour. Dates include Glasgow’s O2 Academy on March 2nd, and a return to London’s Roundhouse on March 9th.
In a statement, Young Fathers say…
“Heavy Heavy could be a mood, or it could describe the smoothed granite of bass that supports the sound… or it could be a nod to the natural progression of boys to grown men and the inevitable toll of living, a joyous burden, relationships, family, the natural momentum of a group that has been around long enough to witness massive changes.”
Kayus comments: “You let the demons out and deal with it… Make sense of it after.”
New single ‘I Saw’ is out now, a bold, bruising return complimented by visuals from film maker David Uzochukwu. Tune in now.
