New EP and Spanish Tour
There is an all-new Clientele E.P. coming up, the first recordings we’ve made since God Save the Clientele. It will be released by Acuarela Records of Madrid (the third E.P. we’ve done with them and the last part of a trilogy). We’ve always used our Acuarela E.P.s to stretch out a little bit between albums and create a kind of a through-the-looking glass version of the Clientele, and this will be no exception, but this time with the catchiest songs we’ve ever recorded. The title of the E.P. is "That night a Forest Grew". See shows section for a supporting Spanish tour, including a visit to Primavera Sound.
Bookshop Casanova, our US summer single for 2007, looks set to get a summer 2008 release for the UK and Europe. It will be digital only I’m afraid but you can download exclusive track Girl From Somewhere and our cover of Television’s "The Fire" as part of the package. There is also a nice graphic of an Owl sculpture from New Mexico as the cover, which is currently behind glass in the spooky Victorian-style Pitt-Rivers Museum in Oxford. Download details when we get them.
