With their highly-anticipated new album 'Now Or Whenever' having to be pushed back to the 7th January due to industry-wide delays in vinyl production, Spector have now kept their fans happy with the release of a brand new single.
The new track 'Country Boy' won't be featuring on their forthcoming full-length, but stands as an ample addition to the band's growing aesthetic over the last year.
Speaking about the new offering, the band's Fred Macpherson said, "Country Boy’s a mini epic torn between glam and glum. It didn’t quite make it to Now or Whenever but almost acts as a coda to the album. Lyrically, it deals in the doom we feel more comfortable discussing with strangers, during the desperate conversations which only rear their heads when the (Wetherspoons) bell finally tolls. Jed evokes Mick Ronson, I narrowly avoid Mick Hucknall and Rich Turvey’s production shines.
"It’s one of the few songs we wrote for the record which touches on world events, which is maybe why it didn’t fit on there. But I’m glad people are getting to hear it now, as we slowly transition out of the plague years into whatever’s coming next."
