The new song is a slow-burning, piano-led ballad with soaring strings, written by the band’s Norman Blake while they were mixing their latest album, 2021’s Endless Arcade. It was recorded at Rockfield Studios in Wales, and arrives alongside a video that shows the band performing it there.
“As a band we’ve already started thinking about another new album,” comments Blake. “This song is the first signpost towards that.” Watch the video for “I Left A Light On” below:
Endless Arcade, Teenage Fanclub’s 11th studio album, arrived back in April of last year following singles “Home”, “I’m More Inclined” and “The Sun Won’t Shine On Me”.
The album, which followed 2016’s Here, marked their first record following the departure of co-founder Gerard Love in 2018, after nearly three decades with the band. It also marked their first with former Gorky’s Zygotic Mynci member Euros Childs onboard.
