It's years since you've been there


Both Ben Watt and Tracey Thorn announced this week they have recorded a new Everything but the Girl album and that it'll be coming out in the Spring. In a week that's been far from brilliant this really is a tonic for the troops. (Their last album came out in 1999, can you believe?). And I really hope I'm not putting the cart before the horse, but talk of some 2023 live dates surely can't be far away...

Everything but the Girl - Missing (1995)

    1. I don't think I'd be overstepping the mark if I said EBTG are a BlogCon22 band; I think they cross all musical boundaries and find their way into so many varied record collections.

    2. Good news indeed and, ooh, that's an interesting point, I agree.

    3. They straddle so many genres, I think; I know that sounds trite, but I'd be hard pushed to think of another act who crossover in quite the same way as Ben &Tracey.

  2. A tonic for the troops indeed.

    Love that song in the clip.

    1. There are some great remixes of Missing out there too...

  3. Excellent news. I loved the late 90s albums as much as EBTG's earlier stuff - Temperamental is underrated in my opinion - and both Ben and Tracey's 21st Century work has also been great. This can only mean that the new album will be fantastic, can't it?!
