Right on cue, Stereophonics released eleventh studio album Kind on 25th October, nearly two years after Scream Above The Sounds, which reached number 2 in the UK charts. The album was recorded over an eleven-day period earlier this year, and was produced by lead singer and guitarist Kelly Jones and George Drakoulias.

After the final date of their global tour back in September 2018, frontman Jones admits that he was just about ready to quit: “I was done, had written no songs, nothing new, I thought I felt like quitting,” he said. But those fears have been quashed with the much anticipated release of what looks to be another chart-topping album.

The album’s lead single, “Bust This Town”, has been described by Jones as a song about escapism. Two people finally find the courage to leave the small town they are stuck in and head on down the road, breaking all the rules along the way. Check it out below.

Stereophonics have achieved six No. 1 albums, ten top-ten albums, 23 Platinum Sales Awards and sold 8.5 million albums sold in the UK alone since forming in 1992.
