Giants unleashed in the Spring

Almost 35 years since their debut LP Rattus Norvegicus, the band release their eagerly anticipated 17th studio album Giants in the Spring.

In true Stranglers’ style, Giants displays both the variety and distinctive sound that the band have become known for throughout their career so far. The album opens with Another Camden Afternoon which is the band’s first instrumental for over 20 years. There are nine other diverse tracks including the recent live favourite Freedom Is Insane and even a tango entitled Adios. The full album tracklisting is:

Another Camden Afternoon / Freedom Is Insane / Giants / Lowlands /Boom Boom / My Fickle Resolve / Time Was Once On My Side / Mercury Rising / Adios (Tango) / 15 Steps

The album will be distributed in the UK by Universal and Edel in Europe with other territories to follow. Giants’ planned release date is early March although we will give you the confirmed date as soon as possible. As well as download, three physical formats of the album will be available. Alongside the standard CD release, there will be a limited double pack CD including a recording of the Saturday acoustic set from November’s Weekendinblack convention. A real treat is in store for all the vinyl junkies out there as Giants will also be released on a limited edition vinyl LP. More details will follow soon including an interview with JJ about the album…

… and on the subject of Giants…

Baz has blogged about each of the album tracks in his latest ratter.
