Vinyl LP pressing. 2015 release, the 12th album from the Britpop band. The album comes after a brutally difficult year for the band following the death from brain cancer of their old friend and drummer Jon Brookes last year. The band went into their studio Big Mushroom in January 2014 and as vocalist Tim Burgess recalls 'We were aching for the summer when we wrote it. It was freezing and we were trying to write songs that made us happy'. The result is MODERN NATURE. Featuring eleven new tracks, including the single 'Talking In Tones,' the album was produced by The Charlatans and Jim Spencer and mixed by Craig Silvey (Arcade Fire, Portishead). MODERN NATURE features a cacophony of contributors from their three temporary drummers - Pete Salisbury of The Verve, Stephen Morris of New Order and Gabriel Gurnsey of DFA's avant-disco group Factory Floor, to Kate Bush's backing singers Melanie Marshall and Sandra Marvin, strings by Sean O'Hagan and brass courtesy of Dexys Big Jim Paterson.
