Shed Seven started their 30th anniversary year in style when ‘A Matter of Time’ became their first ever #1 album, but there’s much more to come as 2024 unfolds – starting with today’s release of their new single ‘Let’s Go Dancing’.

Already a firm fan favourite, especially during the band’s recent sold-out shows, ‘Let’s Go Dancing’ is indicative of Shed Seven’s range. Yearning, romantic and melancholy, the anthemic slowburner is fuelled by the passion of Rick Witter’s lyrics. It’s a plea for one final chance when all appears to be lost, a message of hope at a time when the odds seem stacked against you. As with the rest of its parent album, ‘Let’s Go Dancing’ was produced by Youth (The Verve, Pink Floyd) and mixed by Cenzo Townshend (Florence + The Machine, Inhaler).

Rick says, “Dancing, depending on the style of course, can be personal, or indeed involve multiple people. It may include a certain amount of close contact, and can create unforgettable moments. It can be filled with romance or alternatively it could be an opportunity to let your hair down and get loose. In this day and age where we are potentially only six feet away from some kind of hatred and negativity it’s a way of reminding ourselves there is love in the world. I can hear music and I can see lights, so let’s go dancing…”

‘Let’s Go Dancing’ is available HERE as a limited edition run of 500 7” red vinyl singles, each of which will be individually signed by the band and hand-numbered. Two alternate versions are also available on all digital platforms: the radio edit and the original demo.

There’s much more yet to be revealed to celebrate Shed Seven’s 30th anniversary together. At present there are three gigs on the calendar: two special 8000-capacity celebratory shows at York’s Museum Gardens (July 19th and 20th), both of which almost instantly sold-out and feature special guest and ‘Throwaways’ collaborator Peter Doherty; and a set at Blossoms’ 30,000-capacity Big Bank Holiday Weekend on August 25th.
