Liverpool four-piece Courting have released their brand new album, New Last Name, on vinyl and CD. To mark the album’s release the band have shared a new single, “Battle”.

Taken from the recording sessions of, New Last Name, the single marks the final piece of the puzzle of the album, which was recorded in collaboration with Gary and Ryan Jarman of The Cribs, who worked closely with the band on production duties for a number of tracks. London duo DJ Sabrina The Teenage DJ also lent their production skills to Courting’s recent single “We Look Good Together (Big Words)”, which was announced earlier this year.

New Last Name
is an album as adventurous thematically as it is sonically - but as its title suggests, it hints at new beginnings. “It’s a theatrical play within an album,” explains frontman Sean Murphy O’Neill. "There’s a lot going on. It can be simply enjoyed as an album, but there are characters, acts, stage directions etc. The listeners can decide on the narrative themselves, but we want them to get lost in it.”

The physical editions of New Last Name are available to order now.
