Psychedelic Furs Are Readying Their First Album Since 1991
It's expected to see release early next year
Published Jul 23, 2019After hitting Canada on a co-headlining North American tour earlier this month, the Psychedelic Furs have now revealed new material is on the horizon.
The U.K. band have signed a worldwide deal with Cooking Vinyl ahead of delivering what would mark their first new album in nearly 30 years, Billboard reports. The site notes the yet-to-be-titled effort is slated for release in the first quarter of 2020.
"It's been a long-term ambition of mine to work with the Psychedelic Furs, as they've made some of my all-time favourite records," Cooking Vinyl managing director Rob Collins told Billboard. "That means it's a particularly personal project for Cooking Vinyl and makes a unique addition to our roster following a very active period of signings."
Psychedelic Furs manager Rob Dillman added, "The Furs had been contemplating doing new songs for quite some time. The enthusiasm and passion the label has shown for the band and the project made it an easy call...we are very excited to be doing this together."
Formed in London in 1977, the Psychedelic Furs last released World Outside in 1991. A hiatus soon afterward would see vocalist Richard Butler and bassist Tim Butler go on to found Love Spit Love before reforming the Psychedelic Furs in 2000.
