Lightning Seeds have released their new track, “Walk Another Mile” from their upcoming album, See You In The Stars out October 14th via BMG. The sun-soaked new single is perfect for summer afternoons, the warm tone contrasting with the darker subject matter.
“It’s about two imaginary people arguing about the end of a relationship and blaming each other,” he explains. “I had that thought and was thinking about endings. I was listening to a lot of Northern Soul, and the little vignettes you can get in those songs. I love writers who can do that, write stories – Squeeze, The Kinks, Eminem. I always start off doing that, but end up nowhere near it, so this song is the closest I’m going to get to that.”
All songs on the upcoming ten track opus were written and recorded in short bursts over the last three years. The first two songs recorded were a pair written with the Coral’s James Skelly: “Great To Be Alive” and “Live To Love You”.
“I always think music’s like attack and defense in football –or like politics – or like life. It’s about balance,” Broudie says. “And achieving that is the challenge for me.”
The band will also embark on a 14 date UK tour later this year kicking off October 27th in Cambridge and finishing November 26th in Sheffield. They play London’s O2 Shepherd’s Bush Empire November 4th. Tickets are available HERE.
