Lanterns On The Lake have announced the release of their anticipated new album, Versions Of Us. This self-produced fifth studio album, on which Radiohead’s Philip Selway joined the band to provide drums and percussion, follows 2020’s Mercury-nominated Spook the Herd. The band have announced an extensive UK tour in late 2023 which includes a performance at London’s Islington Assembly Hall.

The nine songs of Versions Of Us are existential meditations examining life’s possibilities; facing the hand we’ve been dealt and the question of whether we can change our individual and collective destinies. Singer and songwriter Hazel Wilde has no doubt that motherhood fundamentally shifted her perspective. “Writing songs requires a certain level of self-indulgence, and songwriters can be prone to dwelling on themselves,” she says. “Motherhood made me aware of having a different stake in the world. I’ve got to believe that there’s a better way and an alternative future to the one we’ve been hurtling towards. I’ve also got to believe that I could be better as a person, too.”

Mixed by the band’s guitarist Paul Gregory, in the bedroom of his home in North Shields, there is a sense of time and place that runs deep throughout this record.
