Liverpool indie veterans, The Coral have released their brand new single, ‘Vacancy‘. The track will feature on The Coral’s tenth studio album, ‘Coral Island’, recorded at Parr Street Studios and set for release on Friday 30th April 2021.
‘Vacancy’ follows previous singles, ‘Faceless Angel’ and ‘Lover Undiscovered’, and signals a band still on top form almost 19 years after the release of their self-titled, Mercury Prize-nominated debut album in 2002. James Skelly says: “We boarded a ghost train with T. S. Eliot, The Kinks and Karloff and we came out the other side with this baroque’n’roll organ riff ringing in our ears.”
An accompanying book will be released at the same time as Coral Island, written by Nick Power, with 20 new illustrations by drummer and frequent designer of the band’s album artwork, Ian Skelly. Over Coral Island, a 188 page companion piece to the music promises an energetically told, truthfully fictional account of places and people familiar to both the author and anyone who has felt the uneasy thrill of finding fun in Britain’s coastal towns.
