Stereophonics today return with a new track ‘Right Place Right Time’ ahead of the release of their new album ‘Oochya!’, out this Friday 4th March via Stylus Records through Ignition Records Ltd.
The track’s heart-warming narrative tells the story of the band’s journey of musical stardom, taking their talents around the world whilst maintaining a love for family and friends. A dreamy glance at what has been an incredible career for Stereophonics, frontman Kelly Jones takes us back to the very start, right when they first began.
‘Right Place Right Time’ is just one of the many genre-crossing moments on the fifteen track ‘Oochya!’ – from the explosive album opener ‘Hanging On Your Hinges’, followed by ‘Forever’, shining with retrospective and escapist lyrics such as, “wish I could fly away forever, wish I could take the pain from you and release you”. ‘When You See It’ boasts glistening melodies with an open-chord distorted guitar, while ‘Do Ya Feel My Love?’ stands out as a stadium-ready anthem; a cocktail of ferocious swagger and gritty tones. Nostalgic and intimate moments feature on ‘Close Enough To Drive Home’, and a piano-led ‘Every Dog Has Its Day,’ reinforced by an orchestral mix of strings, contrasts with the up-tempo AC/DC-esque vibe of ‘Running Round My Brain’ and the country-classic rock ambience of ‘Seen That Look Before’.
