The Coral have announced details of their new album ‘Move Through The Dawn’, to be released August 17th on Ignition Records on CD, LP and digitally – available to pre order https://TheCoral.lnk.to/MTTD
The first track to be taken from the album is ‘Sweet Release’ – available now to stream, download and as instant grat with album pre-orders https://TheCoral.lnk.to/SR
The accompanying video for ‘Sweet Release’, premiered today is directed by James Slater and featuring a synchronized routine by a boiler-suited, paper bag hat-wearing dance troupe, ‘Sweet Release’ continues The Coral’s tradition for visually exciting and wryly amusing promos.
‘Move Through The Dawn’ was recorded at Parr Street Studios in Liverpool and produced by The Coral and Rich Turvey. The album is the influential Hoylake five-piece’s follow-up to 2016’s critically acclaimed ‘Distance Inbetween’, which featured the BBC 6Music playlisted singles ‘Miss Fortune’, Holy Revelation’ and ‘Million Eyes’.
Nick Power, The Coral’s keyboardist, has written a new book, ‘Into The Void’, which will be published by Ebacc concurrently with the new album. Powers’ third book, ‘Into The Void’ is an insightful, amusing and evocative first hand account of the recording, release and touring of ‘Distance Inbetween’, which came after a five-year hiatus for the band.
Since their debut EP release in 2001 The Coral have sold over a million UK albums, with five reaching the Top 10 including 2003’s chart-topping ‘Magic and Medicine’. Their eight Top 40 singles include ‘Dreaming Of You’, ‘In The Morning’, ‘Pass It On’, and ‘Don’t Think You’re The First’.
