The Kooks today return with two new songs ‘No Pressure’ and ‘All The Time’. They also announce details of their long-awaited fifth studio album ‘Let’s Go Sunshine’, with brash, bold, songs that mix melancholy and euphoria, to be released 31st August via Lonely Cat / AWAL Recordings.
With the roar of their recent sold-out UK arena tour still echoing in their ears and more than one billion streams under their belts, The Kooks reach to claim their place in the Great British Songbook with ‘Let’s Go Sunshine’. It’s a bold longplayer that distils their timeless sound into its purest form while pushing it forward into a more expansive and mature space. It’s as moving, energising and timelessly melodic record and incisive in its portrait of modern British urban life. The heart and soul of the record lies in its hymns of lost innocence, fading relationships and the process of break-up and recovery. It’s the sound of an ambitious, confident band stepping out and making a statement with their definitive album. ‘Let’s Go Sunshine’ sees the band cement their status as true bastions of British guitar pop and take their rightful place at the top table next to the celebrated bands that influenced them in their infancy, over a decade ago.
