The Clientele Announce New Album ‘I Am Not There Anymore’, Share New Single

    The Clientele have announced their next album: I Am Not There Anymore arrives July 28 on Merge. The follow-up to 2017’s Music for the Age of Miracles is led by the new single ‘Blue Over Blue’. Check out its accompanying video, as well as the LP’s cover art and tracklist, below.

    “We’d always been interested in music other than guitar music, like for donkey’s years,” vocalist/guitarist Alasdair MacLean said in a statement about the album, which incorporates elements of post-bop jazz, contemporary classical, and electronic music. “None of those things had been able to find their way into our sound other than in the most passing way, in the faintest imprint.”

    Talking about the new track, MacLean commented: “‘Blue Over Blue’ is about getting lost in the woods on Hampstead Heath on an autumn day with my two-year-old son on my shoulders – he loved it and wanted to play hide and seek. I knew he was a ticking time bomb as I had no food with me and was trying to find my way back to a path.”

    I Am Not There Anymore, MacLean added, is all about “the memory of childhood but at the same time the impossibility of truly remembering childhood… or even knowing who or what you are.”
