Ahead of their visit to Edinburgh later this month, South London new-wave legends Squeeze have shared the second single from forthcoming new album The Knowledge. Listen to the track, titled Patchouli, below.
Chris Difford was “inspired by watching bandmate Glenn Tilbrook’s Instagram pictures of him walking his dogs in Maryon Wilson Park,” stating he “imagined two people reuniting there somewhere in the background.
It’s The Yardbirds, it’s the Troggs but most of all it’s Squeeze,” he says.
Speaking about the new album, which is out on Friday, Glenn says: “It is such a pleasure to say that in 2017 we have delivered our best ever record.”
Chris recently observed, “playing back the album I can feel the love we still have as songwriters, and for each other. It’s been some journey, and I hope it goes on for many years to come.”
Produced by Glenn, Andrew Jones and Laurie Latham, The Knowledge was recorded at 45 RPM Studios in Charlton, and finds Glenn and Chris once again in the company of drummer Simon Hanson and keyboard wizard Stephen Large, plus a couple of new faces; Yolanda Charles on bass and Steve Smith on percussion.
Squeeze visit Edinburgh’s Usher Hall on Tuesday, 31 October.
