Placebo – Never Let Me Go (LP)
Placebo announce new album Never Let Me Go
Placebo are today announcing news of their long-awaited 8th studio album. Nine years on from the release of their last outing Loud Like Love, Never Let Me Go is confirmed for release on 25th March 2022.
As great masters in cataloguing the human condition, Placebo’s unique way of examining both its flaws and beauty finds fertile ground in 2021. Crawling out of the pandemic into a landscape of intolerance, division, tech-saturation and imminent eco-catastrophe, theirs is a voice that has rarely felt more significant to contemporary discourse, and more appropriate to sing these stories to the world. Within the magnetic slow-burn of new track ‘Surrounded By Spies’ no punches are pulled in confronting the erosion of civil liberties, as Brian Molko’s deft lyrical delivery is married to a creeping sense of claustrophobia that fittingly makes the walls feel as though they are closing in from all around.
