TV Priest Announce New Album ‘My Other People’, Share New Single

    TV Priest have announced their second album, My Other People. The follow-up to last year’s Uppers arrives on June 17 via Sub Pop. The album will include last month’s single ‘One Easy Thing’ as well as the new track ‘Bury Me In My Shoes’, which comes with an accompanying video. Check it out and find the LP’s tracklist and cover art below, along with TV Priest’s upcoming tour dates.

    My Other People is a more “open’” set of songs, both musically and in our themes; in the process of writing we found ourselves talking about things other than anger or aggression,” frontman Charlie Drinkwater said of the album in a press release. “We wanted to discuss love, loss and joy too. It’s a record about personal disintegration and destruction, but also rebuilding again after this. It’s also heavily rooted in place, the music being a very direct response to Britain and England in 2021, but in a more abstract and textural sense. A muddy field viewed from a train window between cities, a patch of wild flowers growing next to a motorway, sticky carpets in a suburban flat roof pub, pissing rain on an August bank holiday and the smell of diesel in an out of town supermarket car park. An angry, hopeful, shitty, beautiful island.”

    Commenting on the new single, he added: “‘Bury Me In My Shoes’ is a hangover of a song. Last year was about reminding ourselves to hang on to good things; to remember you can love and hate in equal measure. That the answers are rarely found by looking backwards. ‘Bury Me’ was written as a response to that general feeling of unease and creeping dread. A feeling you get from bad news on no breakfast.”
