After blazing a trail with 2020’s critically acclaimed “Good Luck Seeker“, The Waterboys waste no time in delivering their brand new record “All Souls Hill” on Cooking Vinyl. First track “The Liar” is a creeping, groove-laden masterpiece, taking a powerful, descriptive swipe at Trump and the lies and deceit that infest those in power.

 The video, featuring a haunting image by satirical collagist Cold War Steve, amplifies its subject matter in dark eerie fashion. Mike Scott says, “The Liar” is a comment on recent and still-current events, and both song and video speak for themselves. We are proud to work on this video with the brilliant Cold War Steve “.

The Waterboys have dropped the trippy video for their new single ‘Here We Go Again’ the third taste from their forthcoming new album, “All Souls Hill”, out May 6th on Cooking Vinyl. The album follows 2020’s critically acclaimed album “Good Luck Seeker”.

‘Here We Go Again’ is a rousing singalong whose freshness belies the lyrical subject matter. “It’s the idea we’re living through a communal Groundhog Day. We’re all looking at the news headlines, but nobody seems to learn the lessons,” Mike Scott said of the track. “As a culture we keep making the same mistakes. It’s a wry look at humans not being so smart – and yet I have good fun being one. 

“All Souls Hill” is nine tracks of Waterboys brilliance, mixed by Scott himself. “All Souls Hil”l is current, on the money social commentary, but with an air of hope.

“All Souls Hill” is mysterious, otherworldly, tune-banging and emotional,” comments Mike. “I made it with Waterboys old and new and my co-producer, brilliant sonic guru Simon Dine. Its nine songs tell stories, explore dreamscapes, and cast a cold but hopeful eye on the human drama.”
