Squeeze this week announced the release of the group’s first new studio album in two years, a 12-song collection called The Knowledge that is due out Oct. 13 and is preceded by the record’s moody opener, “Innocence in Paradise,” which you can stream in full below.
The album, which will be released on CD, vinyl and digital formats, is the follow-up to 2015’s Cradle to the Grave, which had been Squeeze’s first album of new music in nearly 20 years. Bandleaders Chris Difford and Glenn Tilbrook will be joined on the forthcoming new LP by 2000s-era drummer Simon Hanson and keyboardist Stephen Large, plus new bassist Yolanda Charles.
The record will be released about a month before the band starts its tour of the eastern U.S.
