MUSIC NEWS: We Were Promised Jetpacks Announce Album Details & Release New Single ‘Fat Chance’

Scottish rock outfit We Were Promised Jetpacks have released their new single Fat Chance. They have also announced their new album Enjoy the View is set for release on 10th September 2021 via Big Scary Monsters.

We started properly writing this album at the end of March 2020 when we realised that everything was going to be shut down. We had a US tour lined up in May but obviously had to cancel. So from March to June, we sent each other ideas remotely and collaborated that way. I was so glad we had a project to focus on when proper lockdown hit. When we were able to get into our practice space in July, we were finally able to jam and write more like we normally do. This song came out of those sessions pretty early on,” explains lead singer Adam Thompson.

Speaking about their new single Fat Chance, Thompson says: “I was just messing about on guitar in our studio and got the verse chords and as soon as the other guys joined in, we had a song! We can sometimes spend weeks and months and years trying to get the right parts together but this one flowed. I finished the pre-chorus and chorus that day and sent the demo to the rest of the band and we were excited about it straight away
