MUSIC NEWS: Baby Strange Announce Sophomore Album & Release New Single ‘Only Feel It When I’m With You’
Baby Strange have announced their sophomore album World Below, due for release on 17th June 2022 via Icons Creating Evil Art.
Vocalist/guitarist Johnny Madden comments:
“Since the release of our debut album we’ve had a lot of ups and downs as a band. The highs were unbelievable and the lows were some of the darkest we’ve ever encountered. There was actually a time where we never thought we’d release another album.
“When the pandemic hit, we took a step back and looked at where we were at. As with every band, it was difficult not having the release of live music, we were all struggling with our mental health on personal levels and we started to feel defeated.
“But, being from Glasgow, we never shy away from a fight, so we got up and started writing again. We booked a few weeks in a writing house out in the middle of nowhere and spent time working on rhythms and new sounds that were fitting to where we’re at in 2022.
“The result is World Below, a record that’s bursting with energy and emotion.
“We are so proud of it. It’s exactly what we set out to create, an exciting, honest album that feels brave and bold all at the same time. The new era is here and we can’t wait for people to come along for the ride with us.”
Baby Strange have also shared their new single Only Feel It When I’m With You, which features guest vocals from Hayley Mary of The Jezabels.
“I met the Baby Strange lads at the Priory in Glasgow,” she explains. “Loved their vibe and we hit it off straight away. There’s a great little rock scene bubbling in that city that I’ve missed while I’ve not been able to get there, so I’m incredibly stoked to be part of this track and stay connected with them in a musical way. It’s a killer and I look forward to coming and playing it live with them sometime in the near future.”
