2019 brings us the first album from Sleeper in 21 years! It wasn’t meant to happen. In fact, the band had promised each other it never would. But, as singer Louise Wener said: “We had no plan to get back together. Sometimes life throws you a massive curve ball. You end up jumping off the cliff, just to see what it feels like.” And so The Modern Age is here.
This is the outward-looking sound of a band revitalized and refreshed, and covers subjects from motherhood and social media to personal loss and, inevitably, relationships. The Modern Age retains Sleeper’s classic pop sensibilities but has a shiny, new, contemporary feel.
Note: the LP will be available on indies-only coloured vinyl.
