Stornoway have released details of their forthcoming album, Bonxie, which takes it’s title from a nickname for the Great Skua – a large and rather unusual seabird.
It is due to be released on April 13th through label Cooking Vinyl.
Much of the album’s essence is said to reflect the band’s love for birds and nature, and it appears to carry on the seaside/nautical themes established in their 2010 debut, Beachcomber’s Windowsill.
The name of the album and artwork had been previously unreleased, as had the track listing, which is as follows:
- Between The Saltmarsh and the Sea
- Get Low
- Man on Wire
- The Road You Didn’t Take
- Lost Youth
- Sing With Our Senses
- When We Were Giants
- When You’re Feeling Gentle
- Heart of the Great Alone
- Love Song of the Beta Male
The first single from the upcoming record, The Road You Didn’t Take, was released on February 16th, and now the band have unveiled a video to accompany the song.
Keep an eye out for the second single, which will be released along with the album on April 13th – a track called ‘Get Low’.
