Cast have revealed the date for their upcoming album ‘Love Is The Call’, and shared a new track called ‘Love You Like I Do’.
The Liverpudlians started teasing their return in October this year, releasing the title track from their upcoming album. Today (December 5), they have shared the next snippet of their album, a song called ‘Love You Like I Do’ – take a listen below.
Frontman John Power (also of The La’s) says of the new track: “‘Love You Like I Do’ is a twisting psychedelic love song that stretches itself between the emotions of a love forever felt and a love forever lost. Uplifting choruses, jumping Bass lines and sonic guitars cascading. You know life sometimes has a way of showing that these precious things you have, were never meant to last… to last… to last.”
The band have also finally unveiled the release date for ‘Love Is The Call’, which will be the their newest album since 2017’s ‘Kicking Up The Dust’. ‘Love Is The Call’ is scheduled for February 16 – preorder the record here.
Power says of the upcoming album: “If I was to write a debut record for the band now that captures that energy then this would be it. A psychedelic pop record with a rockabilly beat and a bouncing bass. Somewhere between the end of The La’s and the beginning of Cast there lay this space that I’d yet to explore. ‘Love is the Call’ is that album. It’s that space. A cosmic call to arms, for ‘Love is the Call’.. Calling… Calling.”
