Spector are back with their new single ‘All The Sad Young Men’ out NOW!. The track is taken from their upcoming sophomore record, the follow up to their Top 20 debut ‘Enjoy It While It Lasts’. “Having worked on this album for over a year, I’m so glad that people are finally getting to hear it,’ says Fred. ‘All The Sad Young Men’ is one of the tracks that took us the longest to get right because of how much it meant to us. I’m pretty sure it’s the best song we’ve written, and its honesty plays a big part in that.”

After the amicable departure of guitarist Chris Burman, the band have also shifted roles, with Danny Blandy moving from drums to keyboards, Jed Cullen concentrating on electronics as well as guitar, and Fred, as he puts it, “learning how to sing”, using his voice to combine a new sensitivity with his trademark lyrical style.
After eighteen months cocooned in the studio, Spector have emerged as a completely new band. Where their first album was a precocious blast of stadium-inspired indie rock, their new music is something else entirely and has a depth to match. ‘All The Sad Young Men’ sets the tone and promises big things for the forthcoming new album.
The result is the first taster of an album destined to change perceptions. In an age of one dimensional pop it’s also proof that the best groups take time to earn their wings.
