The Kooks Set For Let’s Go Sunshine Album

The song is one of two new tracks released to preview the fifth album for The Kooks ‘Let’s Go Sunshine’, due August 31.

“This one was about defining who we are, we were asking the questions,” frontman Luke Pritchard said in a statement. “It was a fractured start, we went into the studio in 2015 continuing down the path we set out on our last studio album “listen” and discovered it wasn’t what we wanted to make and wasn’t really the kooks. So we scrapped it and started again. I really went on a mission to write the best songs I’d ever written before bringing them to the band, i stewed over every word. It had to be our rubber soul, Lola, definitely maybe. Proper British lineage. I came from a dark place at the start had a lotta heartbreak and then falling in love in the middle of the album, the lyrics reflect that. From ‘fractured and dazed’ to ‘no pressure’. It’s gotta be our most exciting album, and it should get you dancing.”

No Pressure

The other new song is ‘All The Time’.

‘Let’s Go Sunshine’ is the first album for The Kooks in four years. We last heard new music from the band on 2014’s ‘Listen’.

The Kooks were in Australia for New Year’s 2018 but did not perform anything from the upcoming album.
