Listen to the Stockport band's latest single, which is taken from their upcoming album Foolish Loving Spaces.

Blossoms have released a brand new single called The Keeper.

The track is the second piece cut to be taken from their third forthcoming studio album, Foolish Loving Spaces - which is set for release on 31 January 2020 - and follows the release of their Your Girlfriend single.

Listen to the piano driven single below:

Speaking about the track, frontman Tom Ogden told Radio X's Gordon Smart that the song was actually the last he wrote for the album.

"I got a piano in my back room at home and the start of this year and I'd done a few songs for Foolish Loving Spaces, and this was the last tune I wrote for the album actually," he revealed.

"It started off with a piano riff and it just came to me at once. I got the chords for the chorus and it was all there with the melody. It was just one of them that fell from the sky, as you hear other songwriters say.

"I've heard Noel (Gallagher) say that about tunes..."

He added: "I had The Keeper line and the rest of it kind of followed around it. I knew I wanted to call the song The Keeper and just do a big celebration of love so to speak.

"I've said that before about the album, but this song's probably the biggest one on there of just a joyous song about being in love, really."

Foolish Loving Spaces will be the Stockport five-piece's third studio album and the follow-up to 2016's self-titled debut and 2018's Cool Like You.
