The Chesterfields are releasing their first single is 22 years. Titled Our Songbird Has Gone it’s a song about founding member Dave Goldsworthy who was tragically killed in a hit and run accident in 2003. It’s written by fellow founder member Simon Barber being a cleverly simple and dignified track. Musically the sound is an updated version of the music they made 30 odd years ago.
The band have also announced that a new album, titled New Modern Homes, will be released in September. The album sees the band reuniting with producer John Parish who produced their debut album Kettle in 1987.
Our Songbird Has Gone will be released via Hamburg based label Mr Mellow’s Music on July 15 2022. I believe the 7″ vinyl has been sold out but you can pre-order it digitally from here.
