Cate Le Bon announces new album 'Pompeii'

Following on from the release of her highly-praised 2019 LP 'Reward', Cate Le Bon has now returned to announce the details behind her next studio album, arriving early next year.

The new full-length 'Pompeii' is being previewed by the new single 'Running Away' which features Warpaint's Stella Mozgawa on drums and comes accompanied by a stunning Casey Raymond-directed video, and is set to be released on the 4th February via Mexican Summer.

Speaking about the new record, she said, “Pompeii was written and recorded in a quagmire of unease. Solo. In a time warp. In a house I had a life in 15 years ago. I grappled with existence, resignation and faith. I felt culpable for the mess but it smacked hard of the collective guilt imposed by religion and original sin.

"The subtitle is: You will be forever connected to everything. Which, depending on the time of day, is as comforting as it is terrifying. The sense of finality has always been here. It seems strangely hopeful. Someone is playing with the focus lens. The world is on fire but the bins must go out on a Tuesday night. Political dissonance meets beauty regimes. I put a groove behind it for something to hold on to. The grief is in the saxophones.”
