After spending the last two decades cementing themselves as British Sea Power, the newly renamed Sea Power have now announced their plans for a new studio album, arriving early next year.
The new full-length 'Everything Was Forever' follows on from the 2017 LP 'Let The Dancers Inherit The Party', is being previewed by the new lead single 'Two Fingers', and is set to be released on the 11th February 2022.
Speaking about the new offering, co-frontman Yan Scott Wilkinson said, "The song is part inspired by our late dad. He was always giving a two-fingered salute to people on the telly – a kind of old-fashioned drinking term, toasting people or events: ‘I’ll drink two fingers to that’, to some news item or to memories of a childhood friend. In the song it’s a toast to everyone, remembering those in our lives and those sadly no longer here and to making the world a better place. The song is 'Fuck me, fuck you, fuck everything.' But it’s also 'Love me, love you, love everything' – exultation in the darkness. If you say ‘fuck you’ in the right way, it really can be cathartic, a new start."
While adding about the name change as a "modest gesture of separation from the wave of crass nationalism that has traversed our world recently".
