Those lovely fellas Ghosts have released a sneak preview of their hugely anticipated debut album The World Is Outside in the form of an audio podcast that includes clips from a selection of track on this new LP.
Ghosts release their debut album The World Is Outside on June 11th through Atlantic Records, this is preceded by the single of the same name on 28 May (digital)/ 4 June (physical).
Over the last few months Ghosts have been creating quite a stir. Their debut release Musical Chairs was itunes single of the week and picked up some rave reviews including The Guardian Guides pick of the week. They were in the Top 10 of the BBCs Sound Of 2007 poll and have been a regular fixture on the airwaves.
Ghosts first met at school and have been together, in one guise or another, ever since. It is little wonder, then, that the music sounds so self-assured, and so very accomplished - ecstatic melodies, sugar-spun choruses and a precise understanding of pop music and all its infinite nuances.
