Having almost fallen completely off the radar since their 2009 studio album 'Take Me Round Again', The Fiery Furnaces are now back with a brand new single.
The new track 'Down At The So And So On Somewhere' is their first piece of new material in over a decade, and is being released through Third Man Records on a 7" vinyl, which will include the physical-only B-side 'The Fortune Teller's Revenge'.
Speaking about their new offerings, the band said, "This is the first new music from The Fiery Furnaces in ten years. The songs were recorded in New York City and a few hours north of New York City on February 3 and February 10 - 12, 2020. 'Down at the So and So on Somewhere' is a regretful song about having regrets. Now it seems even more sad than we thought it was back then: 'Will you meet me,' etc. Matthew was happy to use a Soviet drum machine. Eleanor was happy to play real drums.
"'The Fortune Teller's Revenge' is another sad song. We cut out the lines from the first and third verse: 'with me; just kidding' and 'leave everything to me.' Matthew likes hearing Eleanor sing 'I'm sorry to say I've never made a mistake.' Eleanor likes that you can't quite tell who's singing what, when."
