Next week will see the release of the Super Furry Animals’ ninth album, entitled Dark Days/Light Years.
Released in the sense of the fact that it will be available digitally from Monday night over at their website. It will be physically released on April 13 in the UK and April 21 in the US.
This track has been made available as a free download…and it’s great. Classic SFA, I’m not quite sure what they’re on about, but it’s gorgeous, and makes me wish i could actually dance. And it reminds me that SFA are a national treasure, and whilst so many fell by the wayside, they continue to innovate because they always innovated. To the best of my knowledge it’s the first time they’ve ever had Nick McCarthy from Franz Ferdinand rapping on any of their songs before. In German. Actually, I’m not sure he’s rapped on any of Franz Ferdinand’s stuff before, and I’ve got most of what they’ve put out…
