The Waterboys return with another album All Souls Hill due 22nd April 2022 via Cooking Vinyl. The band have shared the video for the first single ‘The Liar’. The video, features a haunting image by satirical collagist Cold War Steve.
Mike Scott comments
“The Liar is a comment on recent and still-current events, and both the song and video speak for themselves. We were proud to work on this video with the brilliant Cold War Steve.”
All Souls Hill 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. It’s nine songs tell stories, explore dreamscapes, and cast a cold but hopeful eye on the human drama.”
The music is scaled back on this track compared to some of the Waterboys epic musical scores, but with a stop start groove that sits under Scotts vicious lyrics – delivered in his unique vocal style, it is still very much a Waterboys track.
