Fatherson are back, but not as you know them. Today, the Glaswegian three-piece have announced details of “Normal Fears”, their first album in three years. The album is a lush lesson in letting go. Gorgeous, groove-led singalongs steeped in electronics find the band in a playful mode, putting break-ups, old ways of working and everyday worries behind them to start afresh, sunny side up.

The announcement comes as the band share a new short film titled “Same Old, Brand New”, which features stunning live session footage of the band performing fan favourites from previous releases, their recent synth-drenched standalone single “End Of The World”, as well as the next taster of their new material with new single “Normal People” – which is also released today.

Speaking on the short film the band says, “We wanted to do something special to announce our new album. The idea was to create something that could be shared all over the world, a celebration of the new music we’ve created with a nod to what has come before. ’Same Old, Brand New’ is just that. A collection of exclusive live performances presented as a short film that explores some of the concepts around the album and the world in general.

We were incredibly excited to get the opportunity to work with Forest of Black on this. Throughout the pandemic they really embraced this style and created some amazing films for Liam Gallagher, Biffy Clyro, The Snuts etc. Michael Sherrington directed it and was really the creative force behind the vision for the film. We have worked with Michael previously and jumped at the opportunity to work with him again – he has such a great style and is incredibly talented.
