Another Sky have announced the release of their debut album.
Titled ‘I Slept On The Floor’, it’s set to arrive on 7th August on Fiction Records, and is previewed by a brand new single ‘Fell In Love With The City’.
Debuted last night as Annie Mac’s Hottest Record on BBC Radio 1, vocalist Catrin Vincent explains: “I hate breakup songs. I don’t know why, it’s the most universal feeling. Maybe because the world has so many of them. Moving to London was a dramatic shift from small-town life where it didn’t even occur to me I could do music, where this vision of me as a housewife who never amounted to anything felt inescapable, in to a bigger world, of people from all over, of new ideas and a new version of myself.”
The track comes alongside a video, directed by Vincent herself. “We asked if any of our fans had an old mini DV tape camera,” she says, “and they came through (thanks so much Peter Kavanagh, Victoria Wai and Henry Kenyon). We tried to capture the excitement of being on the road for the first time, replicating the feeling of moving to London seven years ago. “Fell In Love With The City” is the second song we ever wrote as a band and we wanted to make a video that embodied the way you’d film a partner, but you’re filming a city instead”.

Another Sky will celebrate the release of the album with their biggest headline show to date, at London’s EartH on 11th November. Pre-sale tickets will be available from 10am on Thursday, 25th June, with a general sale starting a day later. It’s part of an already announced UK run, for which tickets are on sale now.
