James is set to return with the new full length release Girl At The End Of The World, on March 18th. The 12 track album was written in Scotland in January 2015, only months after the release of 2014's Le Petit Mort. The record came together quickly because James recently signed a three record deal with BMG, and the label encouraged them to get back into the studio quickly to keep the momentum going. As a result, according to vocalist Tim Booth, the record was difficult and stressful to make, but ultimately the band is proud of the release. Bassist Jim Glennie further explained Booth's comments in a new interview with the Yorkshire Evening Post:

"There have been quite a lot of deadlines and time pressures...and I think we’ve all suffered a bit because of that but primarily it's difficult when you're a singer because you've got to write words, it's not just about getting the music right, it’s about coming up with what it is you want to sing about and I think we all felt quite a lot of pressure because of the deadlines"

Unlike the last record, which explored death and its aftermath, Girl At The End Of The World has no theme, so to speak.  Expect songs that are "personal, abrasive, warming, and uplifting" along with some "anthemic dance" grooves. Additionally, Glennie reveals the record features interesting and complex lyrics:

"There’s a few on the record where I don’t think he (Booth) knows completely what he’s singing about yet but it kind of becomes a bit clearer as things move forward. I like it when he writes those lyrics, they’re a bit weird, there’s a slightly confusing complexity to them."

Last fall James debuted the first song from the album "To My Surprise," and now they've premiered the first proper single from the record, "Nothing But Love," which is available to stream below:



Girl At The End Of The World is available to pre-order from iTunes, Amazon, or the official webstore.
