Maxïmo Park announce new album 'Nature Always Wins'

Following on from the release of their much-loved comeback single 'Child Of The Flatlands' last month, Maxïmo Park have now announced their plans for a new studio album, arriving early next year.

The new full-length 'Nature Always Wins' will be their first record since 2017's 'Risk To Exist', is being previewed by the new lead single 'Baby, Sleep', and is expected to be released on the 26th February via Prolifica Inc.

Speaking about the new release, vocalist Paul Smith said, "I'm so happy we were able to make this album during lockdown, as it's been a challenging time for everyone. After almost four years since Risk To Exist, we wanted to explore new musical territory (for us) without sacrificing our trademark melodic twists and heartfelt lyrics. As always, the passing of time looms large, although the songs contain more affection for the past than before, and there are occasional hints of the fractious, divided time that we live in."
