UK art-punk band Black Country, New Road have announced their debut album. After gaining critical attention in 2019 through singles like “Sunglasses,” the London septet have announced For the First Time, due out February 5 via Ninja Tune. The album features six tracks, including new recordings of early tracks “Sunglasses,” “Athens, France” and “For the first time,” and they’ve also shared a new track, “Science Fair,” which you can hear below.
“We see this as being a stop in the road,” says vocalist Isaac Wood in a press release. “I’ve always been interested in a really honest portrayal of what a band is and what they’ve been working on. I think it’s really nice if people can see an artist like: this was them in the early days, this was their next phase and that they’re quite clear and honest about genuine progression as people and musicians.”
