The Twilight Sad Return with New LP, Premiere "There's a Girl in the Corner"
Now that the Twilight Sad are mostly done revisiting their album Fourteen Autumns & Fifteen Winters, the Scottish indie rock trio are back with a new album and a tour. Nobody Wants to Be Here and Nobody Wants to Leave will be out on October 28 through FatCat.

The album was cut at Mogwai's Castle of Doom studio in Glasgow. The band were joined in the studio by some familiar faces: the LP was engineered by live sound man Andrew Bush and mixed by returning studio collaborator Peter Katis (Frightened Rabbit, the Swell Season), with live member Johnny Docherty handling bass duties.

This album offers a career-spanning summary of sounds that the outfit have explored on past albums. Guitarist Andy MacFarlane said in a statement, "Over the eight years we've been touring, our live sound has taken on different forms, from full on noise/feedback, to a sparse, synth led sound, to a stripped back set up with just keys, drum machine and guitar, to playing with an orchestra, and to just an acoustic with vocal. We wanted to try and capture all of those elements and develop them in some way to make the new record."

The tracklist is below. At the bottom of the page, stream "There's a Girl in the Corner," which is an earnestly brooding indie rock number.
