Therapy? announce album details

Andy Cairns & Co. are getting ready to rock your world again.

The Hot Press Newsdesk, 07 Jan 2009

The new Therapy? album will be called Crooked Timber and storm its way into the shops here on March 20.

Taking its name from a line by 18th Century German philosopher Immanual Kant – get them! – it finds the trio in experimental mood.

“I guess we’re always challenging just what makes us Therapy?” Andy Cairns reflects. “After so many years, if we were formulaic about it, we’d have gotten bored long ago. The album was written together as a band, and each track has its own concept and inspirations. We’ve taken our time to write them.”

Asked about the lyrical themes, the goateed one adds: “The recording is about celebrating people’s quirks, the things which make us unique. These days everyone tries to fit it, instead of just being themselves. The songs examine what it means to be human – to realise that we’re the only living things on the planet aware of our own deaths."

Tracks on the opus are ‘The Head That Tried To Strangle Itself’, ‘Enjoy The Struggle’, ‘Clowns Galore’, ‘Exiles’, ‘I Told You I Was Ill’, ‘Somnambulist’, ‘Blacken The Page’, ‘Magic Mountain’, ‘Bad Excuse For Daylight’ and the title-cut.
