The Waterboys' 'Out Of All This Blue' coming; listen to new track too!

I count The Waterboys' 1985 album This Is The Sea and 1989's Fisherman's Blues as two of my favorite '80s albums. I also loved Mike Scott & company's wonderful 2011 album "An Appointment with Mr Yeats" with 14 tracks crafted amidst the poetry of W.B. Yeats. I can't wait to hear the band's new album based on the terrific song "If the Answer is Yeah."...

The Waterboys release the groovy, infectious track, "If The Answer Is Yeah" 

New Double Album 'Out of All This Blue' is out September 8, 2017

The Waterboys have announced their brand new double album entitled Out Of All This Blue, available September 8 via BMG. This is their debut album with BMG since recently signing with the label. In advance of the album, The Waterboys have released their first single "If The Answer Is Yeah" - bound to make heads nod... and there's no "No" for an answer! The track is availabletoday for download and streaming. You can listen to the official audio below.

Mike Scott
Produced by Mike Scott and recorded in Dublin and TokyoOut Of All This Blue will be available on digital, double CD, and double LP formats, plus deluxe triple CD and LP packages, which include bonus tracks. CLICK HERE to pre-order. 

Out Of All This Blue is The Waterboys' most exploratory recording yet, comprising 23 songs with Mike Scott's trademark sharp lyrics set to pop music with echoes of classic R&B, country, soul and funk, underpinned by modern hip-hop production values and rhythms. String & brass sections were arranged and conducted by Trey Pollard of The Spacebomb Collective.

Of the record, Mike Scott explains: "Out Of All This Blue is 2/3 love and romance, and 1/3 stories and observations. I knew from the beginning I wanted to make a double album, and lucky for me - and I hope the listener - the songs just kept coming, and in pop colors."
