Razorlight at Radio 1 Big Weekend

New Razorlight song

Johnny Borrell and co unveil next single from the forthcoming album
09 September 2008 - The newest Razorlight single Slipway Fires is coming – released on 3 November on Vertigo Mercury.

It's their first song from their third offering, Wire to Wire, which is set for release on 26 September as a download followed by the physical release on 27 October.

The single got its first 6 Music airing this morning on Sean Keaveny’s Breakfast Show.

Speaking about the album - which was recorded with Mike Crossey in North London - frontman Johnny Borrell says: "We recorded onto tape, the whole thing took about six weeks. We wanted to make a record without any studio trickery, without too much production."

The band – whose second album Razorlight debuted at number 1 in the UK, are thrilled with the result, says drummer Andy Burrows: "The album's finished and we're all in a really good place. I can't wait for us to get out and play it live."

In early October Razorlight – who’ve had several top 10 singles - are due to play a show at the Forum in Kentish Town.
