Six years on from 2014’s ‘So Long, See You Tomorrow’, with a brief hiatus (and a solo Jack Steadman album under the moniker Mr. Jukes) in between, Bombay Bicycle Club kick off 2020 with a collection of songs “for anyone who’s ever turned to music in a time of need.”

In a statement, Steadman adds of ‘Everything Else Has Gone Wrong’: “For me personally it’s about the frustration of not being able to express myself to others, of leaving conversations feeling dissatisfied and misunderstood. Music’s the way I’m able to truly express myself.” Lead single ‘Eat, Sleep, Wake (Nothing But You)’ is a lushly-produced hint of what’s to come, delivered with the same delicate, reassuring touch that defines the best of Bombay’s work.

Bombay Bicycle Club are back after a three-year official hiatus. Everything Else Has Gone Wrong will be their first release as a group since 2014. Along with the album and tour announcements, the band released a playful music video for lead single “Eat, Sleep, Wake (Nothing But You).” The song might sound like frontman Jack Steadman can’t get an ex off his mind, but it’s really thoughts of playing with the band that are haunting him and giving him no peace. The new video by their former touring keyboardist, Louis Bhose, who is now a sought-out director, begins with a lament for the troubled times of Bombay Bicycle Club’s hiatus. “Without their music,” it reads, “British society crumbled,” and it seems the band’s members didn’t fare too well, either. A pining Steadman, utterly isolated in drab industrial settings or abandoned countryside, tries desperately to hack making music on his own—only to find that his former bandmates are suffering, too. They’re all gazing at their creepy, candlelit shrines to their bandmates in their prime and tenderly stroking one another’s faces on their Bombay Bicycle Club wall posters. Lucky for us, because “Eat, Sleep, Wake” is a welcome return from a group that’s been greatly missed.

Bbc everything else has gone wrong

Everything Else Has Gone Wrong is the eagerly anticipated follow-up to the British band’s acclaimed number 1 charting, Mercury Music Prize nominated fourth album, So Long, See You Tomorrow released back in 2014.

The new album was largely recorded out in the US alongside Grammy Award winning producer John Congleton (St. Vincent / Sharon Van Etten / War on Drugs). It features the band’s euphoric new single, Eat, Sleep, Wake (Nothing But You).

Speaking of the record’s title, vocalist/guitarist Jack Steadman explains: “This is an album for anyone who’s ever turned to music in a time of need. It’s about the solace one can get from listening to music or playing music. For me personally it’s about the frustration of not being able to express myself to others, of leaving conversations feeling dissatisfied and misunderstood. Music’s the way I’m able to truly express myself”.

Bombay Bicycle Club have continued to grow, develop and evolve since the release of their debut album, I Had The Blues But I Shook Them Loose, back in 2009 when they signalled their arrival as young teenagers. Rarely in recent years has there been a British guitar band who have the craft and ability to avoid categorisation whilst uniting hundreds of thousands of fans across the globe. With an innate ear for melody and invention, the four-piece are a very welcome return to the fold just as British guitar music makes a timely renaissance.

Jack Steadman from Bombay Bicycle Club has remixed the new single by Rae Morris, ‘From Above’.

Morris says, “I can’t tell you how excited and overwhelmed I am to be able to announce to you this very special remix of my single ‘From Above’ done by my friend Jack Steadman. I met Jack and the Bombay Bicycle Club boys last year when I supported them on their UK tour. I am such a massive fan of everything they create and hearing Jack’s take on my song is the most satisfying and inspiring feeling. I hope you dance hard to it!”
