Irish indie rockers The Academic have released their new single ‘Homesick’, which will be featured on their forthcoming album, ‘Sitting Pretty’.
The album, which is set to be released on February 10th, 2023, is about navigating life in your 20s and the uncertainty that comes with it.
“It’s about the entrance into true adulthood and how that can alienate you from yourself, making you feel like you’re playing a supporting role in your own life,” the band explain. “In one moment feeling 100% certain about everything, only to become overwhelmed with feelings of aimlessness and lack of direction in the next.”
Produced by Nick Hodgson at London’s Snap studios, ‘Sitting Pretty’ is “ultimately it’s about finding your feet, feeling the weight of time passing on your shoulders, and trying to enjoy the good times and meaningful relationships along the way.”.
The Academic will be embarking on a four-date UK tour in February 2023, including their biggest headline show outside of Ireland at the Roundhouse in London.
The dates read:
10 Glasgow, Barrowlands
11 Manchester, Albert Hall
23 Birmingham, O2 Institute
24 London, Shepherds Bush Empire
