The reunited Boomtown Rats have debuted the first track off the Bob Geldof-led band’s first new album in 36 years, the very catchy “Trash Glam Baby,” which you can stream in full below, and which serves as the first taste of the forthcoming Citizens of Boomtown LP.
The album, produced by Rats bassist Pete Briquette, is due out March 13 via BMG on CD, vinyl and digital.
The Rats — Geldof, Briquette, Simon Crowe and Garry Roberts — will follow the release of the album with a 10-date U.K. tour, beginning March 26 in Brighton and wrapping up May 2 in Newcastle. It’s not yet known if the band has further touring plans for 2020, including shows in the U.S.
Check out the Geldof-written single below.
