Blossoms new album Foolish Loving Spaces is officially the Number 1 album in the UK album charts this week. The record features recent singles If You Think This Is Real Life, The Keeper and Your Girlfriend.
Speaking about the news, the band said:
‘We’re absolutely delighted and thanks to everyone that’s bought the album. You’ve made us the happiest lads in the world’.
Foolish Loving Spaces was produced by the band’s consistent and talented team of James Skelly and Rich Turvey at Parr Street Studios in Liverpool. Tom Ogden’s increasingly direct lyrical range turns album three into a romantic page-turner of light and shade, while its divergent moods are supplied by Myles Kellock’s piano and keyboard lines, careering from urgent stabs of TV game show-theme synth to more classic, rolling notes. The record’s multi-instrumental colour and widescreen sound is provided by pedal steel / lead guitarist Josh Dewhurst, while Joe Donovan on drums and Charlie Salt on bass bring fluidly danceable grooves throughout, complemented on occasion, by a wall of gospel harmony.
The band will play an extensive UK tour in March 2020, which includes a date at Manchester Arena, as well as three nights at London’s Kentish Town Forum. Full dates and details can be found at https://
Since forming in 2013, Blossoms have enjoyed widespread success and acclaim. Their 2016 debut full length topped the album charts for two consecutive weeks and went on to earn the band BRIT Award and Mercury Prize nominations, while 2018’s Cool Like You charted at number 4 in the UK album chart, spawning the anthemic singles I Can’t Stand It, There’s A Reason Why (I Never Returned Your Calls) and How Long Will This Last?
