Kelly Jones and co are back with a new single, Hanging On Your Hinges, and their twelfth album, Oochya!

Stereophonics have announced details of a new album, single and tour for 2022.

The band - Kelly Jones, Richard Jones, Adam Zidani and Jamie Morrison - will release their twelfth studio album, titled Oochya!, on 4 March 2022.

They've also announced details of a full UK tour, which kicks off in March 2022, plus a one-off Christmas show in Wales this December, featuring special guests Tom Jones and Catfish & The Bottlemen.

The first track to come from the new album is Hanging On Your Hinges, which is available to stream now. Take a listen here:

Kelly says of the new single: "Hanging On Your Hinges was influenced by my love of early ZZ Top and darker stuff like Masters Of Reality and maybe some Iggy Pop too and probably nods back to Bartender And The Thief. It’s the song on this album that says Oochya! more than anything else, so it’s something we wanted the fans to hear first."

As for that unusual album title, Jones explains: "Oochya! was always a saying me and the band used in the studio to mean “let’s have it”, a blast of energy and optimism and that’s what we wanted to get across with Hinges.”

  1. Hanging On Your Hinges
  2. Forever
  3. When You See it
