The band has their roots firmly entrenched in the ’80s’ style of music. The band persevered a lot longer than most bands do. They did disband in the early 2000s, but resumed their music in 2008 with a new album, Hey Ma. Since that album, they’ve released two EPs (The Night Before, and The Morning After, both issued in 2010), and 2014’s La Petite Mort.
On March 18, James will release heir 14th album. The new album is called Girl At The End Of The World. It will provide twelve brand new tracks (see tracklist below).
The album will be available on CD, DD, 180g vinyl 2LP, and CS (as in Cassette!) Their web site will offered bundles with tees, art prints, posters, and other things. The vinyl LP and the CD will contain the same artwork, however the CD will have a bluish-grey background, while the LP set will provide an orangish color.
Listen to a song (“Nothing But Love”) from the new album already on YouTube. Yes, it’s pretty good.

I’m reminded of another band that has never left although people may be unaware of their new stuff. That band is Simple Minds. Their last album, Big Music, was released in 2014. The music is as good as anything they’ve done, just as Street Fighting Years (1989), which produced “Belfast Child”, and “This Is Your Land”; Real Life (1991), which gave us “Let There Be Love”, and “See The Light”, and Good News From The Next World (1995), which delivered “She’s A River”, and subsequent albums were wonderful. If you’ve forgotten about Simple Minds, you should probably take another listen.
