Maxïmo Park have announced details of their forthcoming new album ‘Nature Always Wins’, that will see release on February 26, 2021 via Prolifica Inc. Alongside this news they have shared the new single ‘Baby, Sleep’.

Frontman Paul Smith comments: 

“I’m so happy we were able to make this album during lockdown, as it’s been a challenging time for everyone. After almost 4 years since Risk To Exist, we wanted to explore new musical territory (for us) without sacrificing our trademark melodic twists and heartfelt lyrics.  As always, the passing of time looms large, although the songs contain more affection for the past than before, and there are occasional hints of the fractious, divided time that we live in. Baby, Sleep is a light-hearted look at the surreal nature of sleep-deprivation, and the way it distorts normality in a capitalist society.”

A typical sounding Maximo Park track, ‘Baby, Sleep’ is dominated by a thoughtfully played guitar this track is an exercise of economic song writing. Paul Smith’s tones are unmistakable on this indie/pop track and a welcome return for the North East lads.
