The last Teenage Fanclub album came in 2016.
After a pretty significant delay, Teenage Fanclub will release their tenth studio album on March 5th.
Endless Arcade has been reintroduced with a video for the 7-minute opener Home, filmed by Donald Milne at Edinburgh’s Leith Theatre.
“I think of an endless arcade as a city that you can wander through, with a sense of mystery, an imaginary one that goes on forever,” says Raymond McGinley. “When it came to choosing an album title, it seemed to have something for this collection of songs.”
“The process is much the same as it always has been. In 1989 we went into a studio in Glasgow to make our first LP”
“Francis starts setting up his drums, the rest of us find our spots around him and off we go. Thirty years later Francis is setting up his drums in Clouds Hill Recordings in Hamburg.”
“A few hours later we’re recording the first song. We don’t conceptualise, we don’t talk about it, we just do it. Each of us are thinking our own thoughts, but we don’t do much externalising. We just feel our way into it.”
