UK indie duo, CHAMPS have announced their fourth studio album, Ride The Morning Glass, due out April 26 via BMG. Alongside the announcement, the duo – comprised of brothers Michael and David Champion – have released their new single, “All The Wrong Places“. Following previously released singles “Adeleine” and “My Baby Lorraine”, the new song can be heard now below.
“‘All The Wrong Places’ is a song about those long dark nights and the demons that visit us when our subconscious is alive and well,” shares Michael Champion. “Whether in dreams, the imagination, or absolute reality. Lyrically, the track explores both real and metaphorical places while the overarching narrative references finding yourself in terrible situations despite having what you believe to be good intentions.”
Recorded at Isle of Wight’s legendary Red Squirrel Studios and produced by James Thorpe, Ride The Morning Glass is a unique combination of cool minimalism and evocative Americana, studded with radio-friendly songs that capture the imagination with cinematic vistas and colorful characters open to a dozen interpretations.
Ride The Morning Glass sees CHAMPS achieve the level of creative involvement they’ve always dreamed of. With time (songs were collected over five years), space (the island’s legendary Red Squirrel Studios), and as many vintage analog synths as they could get their hands on, they were able finally to produce the sound they heard in their heads – a sound that unites past and present and conjures up a thousand dreamlike associations.
