The Wildhearts Announce New Studio Album ’21st Century Love Songs’ Out September 3rd

The Wildhearts are proud to announce the release of ‘21st Century Love Songs‘, their brand new full-length studio album on September 3rd through Graphite Records.

21st Century Love Songs‘ is the follow up to ‘Renaissance Men‘, their highest charting album since 1994’s ‘P.H.U.Q‘, which debuted at number 11.

“’Renaissance Men‘ reminded me of our first album, ‘Earth Vs The Wildhearts‘. No one knew how the fans and press would receive it, so it was balls-to-the-wall rock and fuck ’em if they don’t like it. 

Going in again, for ‘21st Century Love Songs‘, naturally reminded me of our second album, ‘PHUQ‘, where we got to flex our creative muscle, and show everyone what we’re capable of. This time we let the songs simmer until absolutely ready. We let the theme of the album present itself. There’s a subtlety to this album, something that people don’t often associate with The Wildhearts, and a sense of adventure in the unorthodox arrangements of the songs. This is where I become a fan of the band, when we ditch the rule book and just follow our instinct. Sarcastic, fun, angry, proud, experimental and belligerent, all wrapped up in a big ‘fuck you’, this is the sound of the band in their natural habitat. This time we’re in control.” exclaims Ginger Wildheart.

With The Wildhearts classic line up of Ginger, CJ, Ritchie and Danny still holding strong this creatively brilliant band who helped change the landscape of British rock through the 90’s are showing no sign of slowing down.

21st Century Love Songs‘ will be available in usual CD and vinyl formats plus an exclusive limited edition red vinyl.There’s also signed photocards with each format whilst stock lasts, as well as T-Shirt bundles available from the band’s webstore https://www.omerch.com/shop/thewildhearts

Their incendiary live performances over the last few years have seen the band’s popularity hit new heights as The Wildhearts continue to cement their reputation and legacy as one of the best bands the UK has ever produced.
