TV Priest announce second album with lead cut "Bury Me In My Shoes"

TV Priest are back with news of their second album My Other People, and have shared new single "Bury Me In My Shoes" to accompany the announcement.

"Bury Me In My Shoes" is the second track to be lifted from TV Priest's new album, following last month's "One Easy Thing" single, and arrives with a video by Cristiana Figueiredo and Lucas Moreira.

Lead vocalist Charlie Drinkwater says of the new single, ""Bury Me In My Shoes" is a hangover of a song. Last year was about reminding ourselves to hang on to good things; to remember you can love and hate in equal measure. That the answers are rarely found by looking backwards. "Bury Me" was written as a response to that general feeling of unease and creeping dread. A feeling you get from bad news on no breakfast."

My Other People will follow TV Priest's 2021 debut album Uppers.

Drinkwater says of their new record, "My Other People is a more "open" set of songs, both musically and in our themes; in the process of writing we found ourselves talking about things other than anger or aggression. We wanted to discuss love, loss and joy too. It’s a record about personal disintegration and destruction, but also rebuilding again after this. It’s also heavily rooted in place, the music being a very direct response to Britain and England in 2021, but in a more abstract and textural sense. A muddy field viewed from a train window between cities, a patch of wild flowers growing next to a motorway, sticky carpets in a suburban flat roof pub, pissing rain on an August bank holiday and the smell of diesel in an out of town supermarket car park. An angry, hopeful, shitty, beautiful island."

He adds, "Speaking very candidly, it was written at a time and a place where I was not, I would say, particularly well. There was a lot of things that had happened to myself and my family that were quite troubling moments. I apologised to the band the other day for not being a great friend or person in this process, because I simply was not happy. Despite that I do think the record has our most hopeful moments too; a lot of me trying to set myself reminders for living, just everyday sentiments to try and get myself out of the space I was in. Whether or not the sincerity is understood, I think I'll always be proud of that."
