The Waterboys have a brand new double album entitled Out Of All This Blue. This is their debut album with BMG since recently signing with the label. In advance of the album, The Waterboys have released their first single “If The Answer Is Yeah” – bound to make heads nod… and there’s no “No” for an answer! The track is available today for download and streaming. You can listen to the official audio below.
Produced by Mike Scott and recorded in Dublin and Tokyo, Out Of All This Blue will be available on digital, double CD, and double LP formats, plus deluxe triple CD and LP packages, which include bonus tracks. CLICK HERE to pre-order.
Out Of All This Blue is The Waterboys’ most exploratory recording yet, comprising 23 songs with Mike Scott’s trademark sharp lyrics set to pop music with echoes of classic R&B, country, soul and funk, underpinned by modern hip-hop production values and rhythms. String & brass sections were arranged and conducted by Trey Pollard of The Spacebomb Collective.
Of the record, Mike Scott explains: “Out Of All This Blue is 2/3 love and romance, and 1/3 stories and observations. I knew from the beginning I wanted to make a double album, and lucky for me – and I hope the listener – the songs just kept coming, and in pop colors.”
