Asked whether it was different recording a new album as a four-piece (following the departure of Richard “Jupp”) frontman Guy Garvey told Radio X: “Of course it was very strange not having Jupp there.

“When there's been five of you for 25 years and then it suddenly changes to four, yeah it was tough to get going at the front. It took us a long time to get accustomed to it.

He added: “But then there was also really exciting elements of it. By mid-summer, it was making us quite bold in our decision making.

Little Fictions is the follow-up to 2014's The Take Off and Landing of Everything, and also follows Guy Garvey's 2015 solo effort Courting The Squall.
