Following the release of their brand new album, Living In Extraordinary Times last year. Extraordinary times calls for extraordinary music, and James are back with new songs forged in these strangest of days.

The Mancunians returned in 2018 with the Better Than That EP and they followed in August with their 15th studio album, aptly titled Living In Extraordinary Times. Taken together as shot and chaser they prove James to be as vital, visceral and urgent as ever.

James are one of British indie rock’s most celebrated and enduring bands. Formed in 1982 in Whalley Range, Manchester, their debut Jimone EP was released in November the following year on Factory Records and made Morrissey and Johnny Marr into early fans. The band went on to produce a string of huge hits during the next three decades, including Come Home, Sit Down, She’s A Star and Laid.

Some of those songs will be given an airing when they make a summer appearance at Doncaster Racecourse later this year.

There’s nobody quite like James. But like we said, extraordinary times call for extraordinary music.
