Following on from the release of their highly-praised studio album 'Now Or Whenever' and subsequent follow-up single 'Felony' last year, Spector have now returned to share a brand new single.
The new track 'The Notion' marks their first piece of new material for 2023, and was produced by previous Spector collaborator Dimitri Tikovoi and mixed by Catherine Marks, as well as featuring a scintillating guitar solo courtesy of Dev Hynes aka Blood Orange.
Speaking about the new offering, the band's Fred Macpherson said, "We started The Notion on a spare day we had in Liverpool during the Now or Whenever sessions. It’s been on a real journey since, with Jed coming up with these early Four Tet style guitar loops, which have a really hypnotic feel I love. Then Dev Hynes came to the studio to hear some stuff and ended up free styling the solo in one take. I was worried he’d blown a speaker at one point. Lyrically it’s kind of a letter to one’s younger self - a reminder that repressing feelings and emotions is a dangerous precedent, and however bad (or good) things get, nothing is forever. It interpolates various parties, arguments, depressions and a Star Wars quote for good measure.”
