Cornershop are back.
Although it’s been almost a decade since the band’s last all-new studio effort Urban Turban (2012), the Leicester outfit have returned with England Is A Garden.
Due out March 6 on Ample Play Records, the album’s first single is the catchy homage to singer Tjinder Singh’s Midlands home, “No Rock: Save In Roll.”
In a statement about the single, Cornershop had this to say: “There is not one without the other, that rock, for all its focus on death is the savior of life.”
Over the years Cornershop have collaborated with Paula Frazer, Allen Ginsberg, Noel Gallagher and Dan The Automator and have toured with everyone from Oasis to Beck.
They scored a UK #1 with the Fatboy Slim remix of “Brimful Of Asha” in 1998.
Their 2015 effort Hold On It’s Easy was an easy listening reimagining of their 1994 Hold On It Hurts.
