When Squeeze tour the UK this autumn they will be debuting a clutch of new songs, the first new material from the band in 14 years.

Lead track 'Tommy' once again sees Squeeze on fine form and reaffirms the genius of Chris Difford and Glenn Tilbrook's writing partnership. Tommy will be available digitally as a free download via Squeeze's website from December 10th and prior to that as a live recording on at their Pop Up Shop tour. Scroll down to stream it now.

The winning formula of Chris' lyrics combined with Glenn's melodies and production is evident on 'Tommy'. Chris says: "It's taken a long time to get ourselves back to the writing table, mainly because we've been touring in the UK and in the States.

I have been writing lyrics and then sending them over to Glenn who puts the music to them and adds additional lyrics and ideas.' Glenn adds: 'When recording the track we were working on changes to the song and sitting down together discussing where the changes should be made and were in complete agreement about them which is something new for our relationship.'

This new tour and the new songs will remind fans just why Squeeze have left such an indelible impression on the UK's music scene and why they continue to be relevant today.
