Back in 2011, Tom Smith of Editors teamed up with Andy Burrows of We Are Scientists to form Smith & Burrows. That November, the pair released their debut album together, Funny Looking Angels. Comprised of covers and original songs, the Christmas album offered a unique take on the winter holidays.
Eight years have since passed, and now Smith & Burrows are preparing their overdue second album! In November 2018, they debuted a new song called "All The Best Moves" live. At the time, Andy confirmed that they were working on a new album. The duo wrote and recorded off and on throughout early 2019, and by June, Tom was teasing the new demos he could listen to.
On August 18, 2019, the duo arrived in Nashville, Tennessee, where they are now recording the album with producer Jacquire King. He's the same man who produced Editors' fourth album, The Weight Of Your Love. After one full month, the duo finished recording the album.
Tom since confirmed that the new album is not a holiday record.
For several weeks in spring 2020, Andy and Tom teased their album's lead single, finally confirming it would be "All The Best Moves." It premiered on the evening of Monday, June 22nd, and the music video appearing early the next day.
We're still awaiting announcements of the new album's title, release date, and tracklist. Given that we have the lead single now, we expect the album will follow this summer of autumn. Stay tuned for more news!
