Waterboys Release Videos for New Album

Share This:

The Scottish band The Waterboys recently released a new double album titled Out of All This Blue, their debut for BMG Records. Produced by Mike Scott and recorded in Dublin and Tokyo, Out of All This Blue is available in digital, double CD, and double LP formats, plus deluxe triple CD and LP packages, which include bonus tracks. The official track listings are below.

Out of All This Blue is described in a press release as the Waterboys’ “most exploratory recording yet, comprising 23 songs with Mike Scott’s trademark sharp lyrics set to pop music with echoes of classic R&B, country, soul and funk, underpinned by modern hip-hop production values and rhythms. String & brass sections were arranged and conducted by Trey Pollard of The Spacebomb Collective.”

Of the record, Scott explained, “Out of All This Blue is two-thirds love and romance, and one-third stories and observations. I knew from the beginning I wanted to make a double album, and lucky for me—and I hope the listener—the songs just kept coming, and in pop colors.”
