After returning earlier this year to deliver their brilliant comeback single 'Gravity', Palace have now announced their plans for a new studio album, arriving early next year.
The new full-length 'Shoals' follows on from their 2019 sophomore LP 'Life After', is being previewed by the new lead track 'Lover (Don't Let Me Down)', which comes accompanied by a brilliant Theo Watkins-directed video, and is set to be released on the 21st January via Fiction Records.
Speaking about the new record, frontman Leo Wyndham said, “‘Shoals’ is a record about confronting our own fears and anxieties. Through the pandemic we were confronted more than ever with ourselves with little distraction, suddenly seeing who we are in the rawest of forms. It held a mirror up to our flaws and imperfections and forced us to see the real 'us'.
"The record symbolises how our minds can have beautiful yet dangerous depths, like the ocean, and how our fears and thoughts are like shoals of fish that move and shift constantly from place to place; chaotic, often untameable and unpredictable.”
