Tune in for New Lush Song Today!

Wake up! Steve Lamacq will be playing "Out Of Control," a new song from Lush's impending 'Blind Spot' EP, on BBC 6Music sometime after 16:00 GMT today. That's 8AM here in Seattle. It's rather late here now. So, you'll have to do your own math. Just don't miss it, OK? It's Miki for the first time since 1996, for Christ's sake!

The four-track 10" is set for a April 15 release. I'll be seeing them four days later. Um, kind of excited. Here's a quick look at the U.S. dates:

14th April - The Roxy Theatre, LA
16th April - Coachella Festival, Indio
17th April - The Warfield, San Francisco
19th April - Crystal Ballroom, Portland
20th April - The Showbox, Seattle
21st April - Commodore Ballroom, Vancouver
23rd April - Coachella Festival, Indio
14th Sept - Terminal 5, NYC
15th Sept - Royale, Boston
18th Sept - Vic Theatre, Chicago
21st Sept - 9:30 Club, DC
22nd Sept - Union Transfer, Philadelphia

Let me know if you get a chance to check out the new song. Would love to hear what you think. Here's a favorite from the days of CD long boxes and gazing at our shoes.



As an aside, when I was grabbing the link to BBC 6Music just now, the channel played "Cloudbusting" and "C30 C60 C90 Go" back to back. That just doesn't happen anywhere on this side of the pond.

Update: Lamacq began his show by announcing the song would be after 5:00. That's 17:00 GMT or 9:00 here in Seattle.

Update 2: If you missed the radio debut a few minutes ago, don't fret. Lush has just released a video for the song.

WOW!

Brian said...

Hey fellas. In tone, much more like the early stuff than the Britpop leaning last album. Vintage Lush, but more grown up too, which makes sense. Love it.

Brian said...

Hi C. Hope you liked it. Thirty seconds in you say to yourself, "yep, that's Lush."

TheRobster said...

Just parted with 40 quid for the limited 10" gatefold, signed (by Miki's own fair hand *sigh*) with postcards and t-shirt. What a foolish boy...

Brian said...

Robster, And you'll get it two weeks early to boot. I think that's money well spent, but you know I'm going to be an enabler in this case.
