The Last Dinner Party announce debut album 'Prelude To Ecstasy'

After establishing themselves as one of the more exciting names on the rise with their initial efforts 'Nothing Matters', 'Sinner', and 'My Lady Of Mercy', The Last Dinner Party have now announced their plans for their debut studio album, arriving early next year.

The new full-length 'Prelude To Ecstasy' is being previewed by the new lead single 'On Your Side', which comes accompanied by a Cal Mcintyre-directed video, and is set to be released on the 2nd February via Island Records.

Speaking about the new record, they said, “Ecstasy is a pendulum which swings between the extremes of human emotion, from the ecstasy of passion to the sublimity of pain, and it is this concept which binds our album together. This is an archeology of ourselves; you can exhume our collective and individual experiences and influences from within its fabric. We exorcised guitars for their solos, laid bare confessions directly from diary pages, and summoned an orchestra to bring our vision to life.

“It is our greatest honour and pride to present this offering to the world, it is everything we are.”

While adding about the new track, “On Your Side is a love song with its hands tied. It’s about being so devoted to someone that no matter what they do, no matter how much it hurts, how much you know you should leave, you can’t escape. The outro came from a wonderful improvised moment in the studio; James Ford had this synthesiser that warped and delayed and played with the fabric of whatever you put into it. So Aurora and Abigail sat in the studio after lunch and improvised some piano and vocal lines, letting the sounds build on top of each other until that final gasp. It turned into this wrenching shimmering section that sounds like the end of a poisonous relationship; dissolving, fragmenting, painful but also ultimately freeing.”
