Blue Nile – New Album?

232607 BigRab at the Ben Lomond Free Press brings us the fantastic news (as reported on the Today Program) that The Blue Nile are planning a new, fifth and (it sounds) final album, and a tour. The Blue Nile are not exactly prolific, having released four sublime albums in 30 years, so this is quite a big event.

For those who are unfamiliar with the band, the film below marries their track Saturday Night to the paintings of Edward Hopper… a marriage made in heaven.

Hopefully the album will include the fantastic new track in the clip below, which the band played at their live gigs a couple of years ago, although given the glacially slow gestation of Blue Nile tracks and the extraordinarily high level of quality control it’s more than likely that this track has been long discarded!

UPDATE – Neither BigRab nor I noticed that in fact this Today segment dates from a year ago, so too much excitement might be premature. Oh well. I stick by my prediction of 2013.

    We have to be careful here Fleet.

    The distance between the mention of a new album and tour and the events themselves are not a definite period of time!

  2. A good point there BigRab: i figure sometime in 2013? 🙂

    It gets worse!

    I failed to spot that the Today programme in question whilst on a Thursday, was not in fact last Thursday but last year.

    Old news.

    Which kind of emphasises the whole Blue Nile vibe.



    PS Mind you, you failed to spot it too Fleet!
