Supergrass frontman Gaz Coombes has announced a new solo album, Turn the Car Around, that will be out January 13 via Hot Fruit Recordings/ Virgin Music. He says it completes the trilogy that began with 2015's Matador and 2018's The World's Strongest Man. "Turn The Car Around is a record that I’ve been building up to for the last seven years," says Coombes, adding the album "captures the ups and downs of modern life and all the small print in between."
The album includes this summer's single "Sonny the Strong," and he's just shared the elegant, widescreen "Don't Say It's Over" that Gaz wrote about the night he met his wife. "When I wrote ‘Don’t Say It’s Over’ I had in mind wandering through some bustling holiday town at night, two people sharing strange and beautiful moments together,” Gaz says. “The feeling of love and all its complications. And the reality of a life without that love. It’s basically saying (albeit with a few dark edges), ‘My life is better with you in it’.”
