Saint Etienne

Alt-pop outfit Saint Etienne, who’ve been largely dormant in terms of new recordings (bar the odd single) since the release of their 2005 LP ‘Tales From Turnpike House’, have heralded a return to full-length form with new track ‘Tonight’, a forerunner to the outfit’s in-development new album.

Having worked on the song with Xenomania producer Tim Powell, Saint Etienne’s Bob Stanley has this to say of the band’s as-yet unscheduled eighth studio record: “The whole album is about the power of pop, how it affects and shapes your life. People talk about the problem of landfill indie, but there’s so much landfill pop around at the moment – we’re trying to do something about it”.

‘Tonight’ is available for free download on the band’s official site or you can stream it here:
