Following some typically excellent recent singles, Boston Manor have just announced details of their brand-new album Sundiver.

Following 2022’s 5/5-rated Datura, the record directly follows its predecessor, with frontman Henry Cox explaining that it’s “the culmination of two years’ work and four years of planning. Going into the pandemic we knew our next record would be a double album released in two parts, the first a short shadowy-noiry electronic record set over one night and the second a sprawling rock record that documents the following day.

“Both albums are products of their environments,” he adds, “we made Datura in the dead of winter in a windowless studio complex that mostly just produced techno, we’d enter before the sun rose and leave long after it set, basically never seeing sunlight. We made Sundiver in Welwyn Garden City over two summers, we barbecued every day and would walk across the road to a meadow and just take naps in the sunshine when we weren’t recording.

“We’ve essentially been working on this album and building up to it since the pandemic. We were obsessed with trying to make a record that felt like blistering sunshine, or that wavy/hazy horizon you get when the pavement is super-hot, but we didn’t want it to sound ‘happy’ or ‘major key’. Sundiver is by far Boston Manor’s best and most ambitious record to date, and we couldn’t be happier with it, I really hope our fans love it as much as we do.”

Sundiver is due out on September 6 via SharpTone. Check out brand new single HEAT ME UP now.
