Squeeze will release a new album entitled Cradle To The Grave, in October.

Cradle To The Grave is the band’s 14th studio album and features the first collection of new songs from Chris Difford and Glenn Tilbrook since 1998. Songs from the album will feature in Danny Baker’s forthcoming sitcom Cradle To Grave starring Peter Kay to be shown on national TV this Autumn.

Produced by Glenn Tilbrook and Laurie Latham, Cradle To The Grave was recorded at 45 RPM Studios in Charlton. The band features Glenn Tilbrook on vocals and lead guitars, Chris Difford on vocals and acoustic guitar, Simon Hanson on drums, Stephen Large on keyboards and Lucy Shaw and John Bentley share bass duties.

Guest musicians include Melvin Duffy on pedal steel, Dennis Greaves on guitar and Mark Feltham on harmonica. The album will be available as a twelve song CD, digital download and on 12″ double vinyl, including four exclusive cover versions of songs by Lou Reed, Tom Waits, Tom T. Hall and Ray Davies. A special ‘Collector’s Edition’ CD (including a numbered insert) will be released five weeks earlier on August 28th and is available from: www.squeezeofficial.com.

Songs from Cradle To The Grave will feature in the forthcoming TV comedy Cradle To Grave, based on the life of writer and broadcaster Danny Baker. The series, set on a council estate in the 70s, stars comedian Peter Kay as Danny’s father. NME writer turned TV presenter and DJ, Danny was brought up in Deptford, the old stomping ground of the band, and Squeeze were asked to become involved at an early stage.

Glenn recalls: “When I read the book, I got in contact with Danny and said that I thought we could do something together with his book. Danny was already talking with (co-writer) Jeff Pope about a TV series and the mood and sentiment of Cradle were completely in sync. Danny and Jeff both loved it and everything else followed on from there.”

When the team behind the show heard the song Cradle To The Grave, they were so impressed that it was used as the inspiration for the name of the show.

“The scripts were inspiring; hugely funny. It tapped into a period that lyrically I was very familiar with, as I grew up in the same neighbourhood as Danny,” says Chris. “We have been on location to see how it is going. It gave us a spring in our step to see the quality of filming and the direction and the attention to detail. It was very heartening and we are grateful to be involved in something that is so refreshing and also represents our past ‘ we went to the same school, wore the same uniform, fell in love with same art teacher!”
