Teenage Fanclub share new single "Tired of Being Alone"

Earlier this year, Teenage Fanclub announced news of their new album Nothing Lasts Forever. Today they return with the new single, "Tired of Being Alone".

Following on from the release of "Foreign Land", earlier this year, Teenage Fanclub return with the brand new single, "Tired of Being Alone".

Written by Raymond McGinley, the track comes accompanied by a video shot by Donald Milne at Vibberodden Lighthouse near Egersund, Norway.

Commenting on the track Raymond McGinley says: “Towards the end of our session in Rockfield Studios making the album I woke up in the middle of the night. There was a guitar next to the bed. I picked it up and this song came out. The words for the chorus were there already. I recorded a rough version on my phone and then went back to sleep. We recorded the song later that day. As a band we like to trust our instincts and let things happen. As with Norman’s song "Foreign Land" this song only exists because we decided to go to the studio and make a record. If we’d waited for the stars to align first before recording we’d still be waiting now.”

While the vocals and the finishing touches on Nothing Lasts Forever were recorded at Raymond McGinley’s place in Glasgow, the music was recorded in an intense ten-day period in the bucolic Welsh countryside at Rockfield Studios, near Monmouth in late August. This is the same studio that they used to record their 2000 album, Howdy!.

"Tired of Being Alone" is out now. Nothing Lasts Forever is due out 22 September via Teenage Fanclub's own label PeMa in the UK/Europe and Merge in the US.
