Saint Etienne Release ‘Tonight’ Off First New Album in Seven Years
Once upon a time in the oh-so distant ’90s, England’s Saint Etienne tore up U.K. charts with their dance-influenced pop music, even hitting #1 on the U.S. Billboard Dance list a few times. It’s been a while since they released a new album, though — seven years to be exact, which is about to change in 2012. In anticipation of that as-yet unannounced new album, they’ve released a new song titled "Tonight." You can listen to it after the click.
Sounds destined for the 9 P.M. pregame or the 3 A.M. train ride home, doesn’t it? Saint Etienne’s Bob Stanley told Pitchfork that the song is "about the anticipation of going to see your favourite artist. For some reason, I imagine this show is at the Forum in Kentish Town. The whole album is about the power of pop, how it affects and shapes your life. People talk about the problem of landfill indie, but there’s so much landfill pop around at the moment – we’re trying to do something about it." It’s a pleasant thought.
