Stereophonics have returned to the world stage with ear candy thirst quencher Hanging On Your Hinges.
The song is the first to be unveiled from their forthcoming 2022 release Oochya!
As the band celebrate 25 years, Kelly Jones continues to cement his place amongst the great British songwriters.
Having now achieved 7 number 1 albums, 10 top 10 albums, 23 Platinum Sales Awards, 8.5 million albums sold in the UK alone, 5 BRIT nominations and 1 BRIT Award win, Stereophonics stand as undeniable giants of British Music.
Jones says, “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 & 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. Having done some really emotionally lead and introspective songs on the last album, we decided to come back with a bang this time, give the fans something to get a little loose to.”
Oochya! will follow Stereophonics’ previous album Kind, which went to Number One in the UK album charts in 2019, outselling nearest competitor Kanye West by over 10,000 copies. It became the band’s 7th UK Number One album in the process.
