"I'm very happy and proud to announce that the new album is finally done. It's the first original album I've done since Dracula "Swing Of Death", and the first original album under the JORN banner since "Traveller" in 2013. This album was all about working with the best people for the best result, to create a special album we all could be proud of. Release date is set for the 2nd of June 2017."
Supergrass makes music so effervescent and so effortlessly joyous that it's easy to take them and their skills for granted. Surely that was the case around the release of their third album, 1999's eponymous effort, which in its labored fun and weary ballads illustrated just how much hard work it was to craft records as brilliant as I Should Coco and In It for the Money. It suggested the group might have burned too bright and flamed out, but, happily, 2002's Life on Other Planets is a smashing return to form, an album giddy with the sheer pleasure of making music.
