English Teacher deliver new single 'R&B'

With their eagerly-awaited debut album set to arrive in the coming months, English Teacher have now dropped the next cut to be lifted from their forthcoming full-length.

The new single 'R&B' comes accompanied by a stunning new video, directed by Sarah Oglesby, and follows on from the previously shared tracks 'Albert Road', 'The World’s Biggest Paving Slab', 'Mastermind Specialism' and 'Nearly Daffodils' in previewing their first LP 'This Could Be Texas', which is out on the 12th April via Island Records.

Speaking about the new offering, frontwoman Lily Fontaine said, “When I was with him I had writer’s block and to add insult to irony, the only idea I had was for an R&B top line - the genre people always assumed I worked in. As soon as he ended it, I converted that top line into the lyrics and riff for ‘R&B’, and took it to my three best mates. Putting the effort that you could potentially put into a partner, back into yourself and your career, is cool and sexy and gets you signed to Island Records and writing press quotes in a tour van in Holland and you get to meet Jools Holland. Thanks lad.”
