UPDATE: The Psychedelic Furs have postponed the release of Made of Rain, their first new album in 29 years, due to coronavirus concerns. The release date has been rescheduled to July 31st.
“Due to the current situation we are all facing around the world, and because of the logistical issues it has presented us with, we have made the difficult decision to reschedule the release of Made Of Rain to July 31st,” the band said in a statement. “It’s been a long time since we’ve put out a new album, and we want to make sure that we can make it available to everyone. A bit of a delay will allow us to do that.”
The Psychedelic Furs have dropped a stark new song, “You’ll Be Mine.” The track is the second single from the band’s upcoming LP Made of Rain, their first album in 29 years.
“You’ll Be Mine” opens with the chaotic strumming of an electric guitar, as the piano enters with Richard Butler’s vocals: “Don’t be surprised when every second has its place/Don’t be surprised at all.”
Made of Rain drops on May 1st via Cooking Vinyl. It’s currently available for preorder, including a double gatefold LP pressed on splattered vinyl with a signed print from the band.
In addition to the previously announced debut show at London’s Royal Albert Hall on May 14th, the band will embark on a string of U.S. tour dates this spring. They’ll kick off in Key West, Florida, on April 13th, making several stops in the sunny state before landing in New Orleans on April 21st. The leg will wrap up in Santa Cruz, California, on May 7th before the band heads overseas.
