The Coral announce two new albums for 2023

After the roaring success of their much-loved 2021 double LP 'Coral Island', The Coral are now looking to do one better with the announcements of two new albums set to land later this year.

The new full-lengths 'Sea Of Mirrors' and 'Holy Joe’s Coral Island Medicine Show' were the last two records recorded at the Parr Street Studios, a long-term home to The Coral and numerous other bands from inside and outside Liverpool prior to its closure last year. They are being previewed by the new lead single 'Wild Bird', and set to be released on the 8th September via Run On Records in assoc. with Modern Sky UK.

Speaking about 'Wild Bird', the band's James Skelly said, “Like most of The Coral’s best known songs you could pick out, it was written in about five minutes. Once the album concept was clear, this was us imagining the theme tune for an Italian western directed by Fellini with a Richard Yates-written script. It’s us asking ourselves: what would have happened if Lee Hazlewood had produced a Gene Pitney song written by Townes Van Zandt?”
