Cornershop Announce First New Album In Eight Years: 'England Is A Garden'
U.K. indie rockers Cornershop are back with fresh tunes and news of a brand-new album. The band today (Nov. 26) released "No Rock: Save in Roll," the lead single off their forthcoming album, England Is A Garden, their first full-length project of original music in eight years. The album is scheduled for release on March 6, 2020, via Ample Play Records.
"No Rock: Save in Roll" is a rocking new track that pays homage to the West Midlands region of England—known as the Black Country for its densely industrialized footprint during the Industrial Revolution—where Cornershop founder and frontman Tjinder Singh grew up.
“[T]he Black Country… gave birth to heavy metal that has gone on to influence the world to dirty rock, whether the streets are lined with pylons or palm trees, the Black Country has allowed us to see things differently," the band said in a statement, according to Rolling Stone. "So the sound here goes back to England's [sic] Midlands with two thumbs up to the feeling of hearing heavy metal from the back of a stage, as we all ride on and await the female backing vocals of our song to come in.”
The forthcoming album, England Is A Garden, is Cornershop's first original full-length project since Urban Turban, released in 2012 on Ample Play Records. Most recently, the band released Hold On It's Easy in 2015, which comprised reimagined re-recordings of their 1994 album, Hold On It Hurts, as an easy-listening album.
Pre-orders of England Is a Garden from Cornershop are available now.
