The Press Release
"Supergrass" - The Third Album
Supergrass will release their third album, "Supergrass" on Parlophone Records on 20th September.
Including the hit singles "Pumping On Your Stereo" and "Moving", the album features twelve tracks recorded at the band's favourite Sawmills Studio and are produced by Supergrass & John Cornfield. A limited edition enhanced deluxe CD will be available on a first-come-first-served basis and will feature exclusive video footage of the band.
Full track listing is as follows;
2) "Your Love"
3) "What Went Wrong (In Your Head)?"
4) "Beautiful People"
5) "Shotover Hill"
8) "Jesus Came From Outta Space"
9) "Pumping On Your Stereo"
10) "Born Again"
12) "Mama & Papa"
Both the band's previous albums ("I Should Coco" (1995) & In It For The Money (1997)) were platinum UK album, also selling well in excess of one millions copies worldwide.
The new album is a huge leap forward for Supergrass - a variety of weird and wonderful instruments made the short journay down river to Sawmills Studio in the autumn of 1998, an indicator that the band were keen to broaden their sound with this album, moving away from straight guitar rock into a wider range of styles, from the gorgeous string drenched grace of "Moving", through the laidback West Coast vibe of "Shotover Hill" and the experimental "Eon"'s stunning electronica.
Bassist Mick Quinn shares much of the vocal responsibilities this time (assuming lead vocal duties on the tracks "Beautiful People", a vivid sketch of late-Nineties Met Bar culture, and the haunting album closer "Mama & Papa"), another mark of the band's growing confidence.
