Savages Announce New Album ‘Adore Life,’ Share Video for ‘The Answer’
Following their Henry Rollins-narrated album trailer, Savages have officially announced their sophomore effort, Adore Life. The album is due out Jan. 22 via Matador. Take a look at the cover art and 10-song track list at the bottom of the page.
If the new album title strikes you as potentially less fierce than what was heard on the English four-piece’s 2013 debut, Silence Yourself, Savages have also unveiled a video for lead-off track “The Answer,” and it proves they have done anything but lost their edge.
"The Answer" is a 360-degree, performance-based clip directed by the band’s frequent collaborator, director Giorgio Testi. Check it out up above. The band offered this statement on the new video:
We've observed our audience all around the world and noticed that something is happening. People want to be pushed to do good, or to be good, or just to feel good. We wanted a very intense video, that felt like banging your head against the wall, focusing on our audience: a portrait of our crowd, an homage to music lovers and the good people who are coming to gigs and shouting their lungs out, or just smiling at the back. We were touched by them every night, and wanted to get their message out there: loud guitar music is still alive and still connects people.
Adore Life was recorded at RAK Studios in London. Johnny Hostile, frontwoman Jehnny Beth’s partner, produced; Richard Woodcraft served as engineer; and Trentmøller mixed the album. You can pre-order it now on iTunes.
