Do you remember that special alchemy that transforms even the most mundane of experiences – walking home with the headphones on at night, sitting in a bedroom with your friends in the day, getting ready to go out on the weekend – into a lingering moment of seamless enchantment, one that resonates for the rest of your life?
Our new album, Words and Music by Saint Etienne, is about that.
About how music affects your life.
How it defines the way you see the world as a child.
How it can get you through bad times in unexpected ways.
How songs you’ve known all your life can suddenly develop a new attachment and hurt every time you hear them.
More than how it affects and reflects your life though, the album is about believing in music, living your life by its rules.
The album will be released on 21st May on CD, 2CD Deluxe Edition, LP and a special boxset version. The tracklist is:
1. Over the Border
2. I’ve Got Your Music
