The Jesus And Mary Chain – Glasgow Eyes (New Vinyl) (Limited Edition) (Transparent Red Vinyl)



New sealed copy. Indie record store limited edition exclusive on transparent red coloured vinyl.

Glasgow Eyes is the eighth studio album by Scottish alternative rock band the Jesus and Mary Chain. It was released on 22 March 2024 through Fuzz Club, and marks their first studio release in seven years, following Damage and Joy (2017).

The band recorded Glasgow Eyes at the Castle of Doom Studios in Glasgow. Jim Reid stated that the album is "certainly" what people expect of a Jesus and Mary Chain record. Coinciding with their 40th band anniversary, he said that their "creative approach" is the same as it was in 1984: "just hit the studio and see what happens". They started recording a "bunch of songs" and "let it take its course". Reid clarified that there were "no rules" as they share a form of "telepathy", calling him and his brother "those weird not-quite twins that finish each other's sentences". The duo went into the studio and felt their "way around" operating by "the same old deal", however, contemporary music had "some sort of impact on the production values". They messed around with "some synths" and tweaked "the sound a bit". 

The lead single "Jamcod" was released alongside the album announcement on 29 November 2023. Leaning on "their barbed electronic aspects", it showcases William Reid's "synth skills" and combines "dark electronica with some crunching guitars". The duo will embark on a European tour in March and April 2024.
