New Album Release Date (14.10.2013) & Video Teaser of Across Six Leap Years

teaser for A6LY: 

A6LY teaser
“We are proud to announce the release of our 10th studio album, ‘across six leap years’, on 14 October 2013. Recorded at Studio 2, Abbey Road between 6-9 April 2013, ‘across six leap years’ features 10 new versions of songs from throughout our history.

‘Recording these songs again was not so much about righting past mistakes or inadequacies, but more about the power of now. Something that’s been growing since the film shows, something that made us recognise how we feel now, and connecting that to our past feel important.
Walking up to Abbey Road, it could easily have overcome us. But it had nothing to do with its past. We weren’t there to take photos on the crossing. I didn’t think about playing the Lady Madonna piano. I’d like to say it was just another studio, but sadly, that’s not true anymore. It’s one of the only studios of its kind left. And it wasn’t about our past either. These songs feel like cover versions. Someone else’s music we feel we had something new to bring to. Abbey Road could have been a big slap on the back. Or a big punch in the face. But it felt natural. It’s where we should be. It’s important that we got here and to give ourselves some credit. It’s also important to give these songs a new life.
And so much more fun than a greatest hits album. 21 years of tindersticks. This isn’t a selected highlights. It just shows how far we’ve come.’
David Boulter 2013”
