Echo And The Bunnymen

Lovers On The Run is released 26 May.

The track is first single to be taken from new album Meteorites, which contains ten new songs written by frontman Ian McCulloch and performed with fellow original band-member Will Sergeant on guitar. The album was recorded in London and Liverpool and produced by Youth.

Meteorites is their twelfth studio album and their first in five years.

“For me, this is a whole new approach. It’s more edgy than anything I’ve ever done,” says McCulloch. “I’m dealing with something on this record I didn’t want to deal with for a long time.”
