Fatherson have announced their new album Normal Fears, due for release on 25th February 2022 via Easy Life Records. The release marks the band’s first album in three years.
The trio have also shared a new short film, titled Same Old, Brand New, which features live session footage of the band performing fan-favourites from previous releases, as well as their new single Normal People.
“We wanted to do something special to announce our new album. The idea was to create something that could be shared all over the world, a celebration of the new music we’ve created with a nod to what has come before. Same Old, Brand New is just that. A collection of exclusive live performances presented as a short film that explores some of the concepts around the album and the world in general,” the band comments.
“We were incredibly excited to get the opportunity to work with Forest of Black on this. Throughout the pandemic they really embraced this style and created some amazing films for Liam Gallagher, Biffy Clyro, The Snuts etc. Michael Sherrington directed it and was really the creative force behind the vision for the film. We have worked with Michael previously and jumped at the opportunity to work with him again – he has such a great style and is incredibly talented.
“This performance film is our way of showcasing our new music to the whole world and we can’t wait for everyone to watch it.”
“There is a perspective in the song that is about falling in love and feeling like you’re the only two people in the world, looking out at everyone else,” frontman Ross Leighton says of the band’s new single. “At that moment I had never been so sure of anything before, which was an amazing feeling. However, in all honesty it is kind of a bluff because I am a normal person riddled with fear.”
