Maxïmo Park New Album ‘Nature Always Wins’
Maxïmo Park have announced their forthcoming album ‘Nature Always Wins’ as well as shared new single ‘Baby, Sleep’.
The news follows last month’s surprise song release ‘Child Of The Flatlands’, with the album title paying tribute to the famous Nature vs Nurture debate.
Frontman Paul Smith commented, “I’m so happy we were able to make this album during lockdown, as it’s been a challenging time for everyone. After almost 4 years since Risk To Exist, we wanted to explore new musical territory (for us) without sacrificing our trademark melodic twists and heartfelt lyrics. As always, the passing of time looms large, although the songs contain more affection for the past than before, and there are occasional hints of the fractious, divided time that we live in.
Baby, Sleep is a light-hearted look at the surreal nature of sleep-deprivation, and the way it distorts normality in a capitalist society.”
