Return of Teenage Fanclub!


Fannies’ first in five years set for
June 8 release on Merge. Free MP3, below.

You saw the headline right – the Scottish popsters return on June 8 with a
brand new album, Shadows, via Merge. UK
tour dates have already been announced as well, and as things stand now, a US tour will
probably happen in September. Let’s get those visas in order, guys.



It has been 5 years since their last album, Man-Made. As Merge is
quick to remind us, “It is no overstatement to say the new album is keenly
anticipated. While most bands are lucky to have one great songwriter, Teenage
Fanclub are blessed with three, hence Shadows is overflowing with the
kind of gorgeous, harmony-driven classics you’d expect to find on a greatest
hits album.”


Here’s an advance listen: from the album. Gee, it
sounds just like early Big Star, who’d a thunk it!
