Bear's Den announce new album 'Blue Hours'

Following on from the release of their much-loved collaborative collection 'Fragments' alongside Paul Frith in 2020, Bear's Den have now announced their plans for a new studio album, arriving in the coming months.

The new full-length 'Blue Hours' will include the previously shared track 'All That You Are', is being previewed by the new lead single 'Spiders', and is set to be released on the 13th May via Communion Records.

Speaking about the new album, the band's Andrew Davie said, "Blue Hours is a kind of imaginary space you get into at night, a place where you process difficult things or where you try to figure everything out."

While adding about 'Spiders', "I started writing 'Spiders' around the time we left London. In my head, I thought moving would solve lots of problems, like everything will be better - almost like this Neverland vibe. 'Spiders' is a song dealing with the fact that this absolutely wasn't the case. I had this vision in my head that I'd be at one with nature, that I'd be calmer - but all the things that were rattling around in my brain before were still there after the move. The song is about the fact you can't run away from the things that are bothering you.

"While making the record we wanted to get across a kind of simmering intensity with the song and the idea of someone trying to keep their shit together while wrestling with these darker thoughts and feelings. We wanted to get across a sense of bravery & triumph in saying, "sometimes I can't pull myself out" of these difficult situations. To celebrate the difficult moments because we all have them. They are a universally shared experience even if it feels sometimes like they're not and you're the only one who feels them."
