London Grammar have put back the release of their third album.
‘Californian Soil’ was originally due on 12th February via Ministry Of Sound, but it’ll now arrive on 9th April instead. The band have also shared their new single, ‘Lose Your Head’.
The record sees frontwoman Hannah Reid “gaining possession of my own life”, she explains. “Misogyny is primitive, which is why it is so hard to change. But it is also fearful. It’s about rejecting the thing in yourself which is vulnerable or feminine. Yet everybody has that thing.
“This record is about gaining possession of my own life. You imagine success will be amazing. Then you see it from the inside and ask, why am I not controlling this thing? Why am I not allowed to be in control of it? And does that connect, in any way to being a woman? If so, how can I do that differently?”
The full tracklisting reads:
Lose Your Head
Lord It’s A Feeling
How Does It Feel
Baby It’s You
Call Your Friends
All My Love
I Need The Night
