James - Living In Extraordinary Times [Magenta Vinyl] (LP)
This summer, James are back with new songs forged in these strangest of days. The Mancunians returned in May with the Better Than That EP, and will follow that in August with their 15th studio album, the aptly titled Living in Extraordinary Times.
As well as biting social commentary, the new record also sees Tim Booth speak frankly about deeply personal issues. On Coming Home (Pt. 2), for example, he writes - not for the first time - about the pain of being a father on tour away from a young child. That song features an appearance from long-time James collaborator Brian Eno.
This limited edition double-LP format is pressed on magenta vinyl and is presented in an exclusive grey sleeve. It's only available through independent shops such as ourselves, so be quick!
