There Will Come A Time, the first single to be released from Noah And The Whale’s fourth album, Heart Of Nowhere, was exclusively revealed with a first play on Radio One last week (March 20th). T
he video is the official trailer for the short film that will accompany the album’s release, directed by Noah And The Whale’s Charlie Fink. Heart Of Nowhere (the film) will see it’s first screenings in line with the album’s release on May 6th.
Heart Of Nowhere (the album) will be launched with a full UK tour that includes a four week residency - ‘A Month Of Sundays’ - at London’s Palace Theatre.
The release of Heart of Nowhere follows a hugely exciting few years for Noah And The Whale. The band’s album sales have topped the million mark since the release of 2011’s Platinum-selling Last Night On Earth, while touring for that record culminated in a triumphant show at London’s Royal Albert Hall.
The album took shape in the early spring quiet of Osea Island, in the Blackwater Estuary, a location with limited access that provided perfect isolation for the fledgling songs. Later recording took place in the south of France, and finally at British Grove. It was produced by the band and mixed by Craig Silvey.
Heart Of Nowhere is a record that sounds by turns melancholy and withdrawn, and at others flushed and exuberant. There is a looseness to these songs that speaks of a band full-grown and at ease with its sound.
