Mogwai unveil new single 'Ritchie Sacramento'

With their highly-anticipated new album set to arrive next month, Mogwai have now unveiled the next cut to be lifted from their forthcoming full-length.

The new single 'Ritchie Sacramento' was premiered by Mary Anne Hobbs on BBC 6Music, and follows on from the previously shared lead track 'Dry Fantasy' in previewing their tenth LP 'As The Love Continues', which is out on the 19th February via Rock Action Records.

Speaking about the new offering, the band's Stuart Braithwaite said, “Ritchie Sacramento’s title came from a misunderstanding a friend of ours had about how to say Ryuichi Sakamoto. The lyrics were inspired by a story Bob Nastanovich shared about his friend and bandmate David Berman who proclaimed “Rise Crystal Spear” as he threw a shovel at a sports car. The song is dedicated to all the musician friends we’ve lost over the years.”
