Everything But The Girl release single ahead of first new album in 24 years

Everything But The Girl have released the single ‘Nothing Left To Lose’, with accompanying music video, ahead of their first new album in almost a quarter of a century.

Everything But The Girl

The musical duo of Ben Watt and Tracey Thorn will be dropping the 10-track album, titled Fuse, on 21 April – an album that’s been billed as “a modern take on the lustrous electronic soul the band first pioneered in the mid-90s”.

The track, which holds a fair amount of sub-bass and bears Thorn’s distinctive vocals, also arrives with a music video directed by Charlie Di Placido, whose prior credits include Kojey Radical and Jungle. 

You can check out the new music video, set in a late-night caff, below.

Thorn, who’s released several solo records since the band’s in 2000, has said of the forthcoming record: “Ironically, the finished sound of the new album was the last thing on our mind when we started in March 2021. 

“Of course, we were aware of the pressures of such a long-awaited comeback, so we tried to begin instead in a spirit of open-minded playfulness, uncertain of the direction, receptive to invention.”

And whilst the new single might give an indication of a more dance-oriented album, Thorn also explained in an interview with NME that after the, people may “assume the album is more electronic than acoustic, but there is a mixture of stuff on there.”

After many years inactive, the first murmurings of new work arrived in November last year when Thorn tweeted: “Just thought you’d like to know that Ben and I have made a new Everything But The Girl album. It’ll be out next spring”. That day is soon to arrive.
