Razorlight Announce Their First Album In 10 Years


Razorlight Johnny Borrell

London indie-rock outfit Razorlight have announced details of their first new album in ten years, releasing four new music videos and revealing a UK tour for December 2018.

The band will release their fourth studio album Olympus Sleeping, a full decade after their last record, on October 26th. It will see the legendarily confident singer Johnny Borrell working with guitarist David Ellis and The Pretenders' Martin Chambers on drums.

Razorlight were one of the biggest British guitar acts of the Noughties, scoring a UK number 1 hit with their 2006 single ‘America’ and shifting over 1.5 million copies of their first album Up All Night.

Stiff Records' Hilarious Press Release On Johnny Borrell's Poor Album Sales

It's not typical record company procedure, but this is Stiff Records, "where the fun never sets," - apparently.

The label sent out a hilarious press release this week, announcing the first sales figures for Johnny Borrell's - of Razorlight fame - first solo album, Borrell 1. It's actually the first new album that Stiff Records have put out since 2007 - and it sold just 594 copies. Given the Beatles reference in the title, it's probably not too serious.

But anyway, to put that into perspective, that's just less than The Voice winner Leanne Mitchell managed to shift.
