Echo & The Bunnymen share new song and announce 2018 UK tour

Echo & The Bunnymen have announced their first new album in four years and will tour the UK in October.

The new record, entitled The Stars, The Oceans & The Moon, is a 15-track collection which will feature new versions of songs from their back catalog along with two brand new recordings.

“I’m not doing this for anyone else. I’m doing it as it’s important to me to make the songs better. I have to do it,” says Bunnymen frontman Ian McCulloch in a statement.

The new record is out in October and they’ve shared the lead single today which is a sparse rework of their iconic 1984 track ‘Seven Seas’.
