ZOOT WOMAN releases new album STAR CLIMBING today!
Zoot Woman release ‘Star Climbing’ today through Embassy One, PIAS/Rough Trade. First single ‘Don’t Tear Yourself Apart’ was released on August 15th.
Fourth long awaited new album ‘Star Climbing’ is a significantly different offering, fresh and optimistic electronic pop with trademark suave vocals from Johnny Blake, written and recorded in four different studios across the UK and in Price’s L.A studio.
“We felt the need to challenge our own style, to open new doors creatively. It is without a doubt my favourite Zoot Woman album. The title ‘Star Climbing’ is about the idea of reaching for something beyond what you know. ” (Johnny Blake, Zoot Woman)
“We recorded Star Climbing over a three year period between our studios, working on songs and lyrics until we felt like we had found the albums direction. It is our most distinctive album to date, combining all our different tastes and styles into one.” (Stuart Price, Zoot Woman)
‘Don’t Tear Yourself Apart’ is the first single from the album inspired by the need for hope when things feel dark. It was recorded in a similar way to ‘It’s Automatic’, minimal music, simple song, written on an old Casio synthesizer and 909 drum machine. “It’s a song for when you’re completely lost, but you’ve got someone telling you everything’s going to be alright.” (Adam Blake, Zoot Woman)
