The Psychedelic Furs this week premiered the fourth song off the band’s first new album in 29 years, the pandemic-delayed Made of Rain. The newest song to debut off that record is the dark, moody “Come All Ye Faithful” — and no, it’s not the Christmas song.
The album, which had been due out in early May, will now instead be released on July 31 due to “logistical issues” presented by the coronavirus pandemic, according to the band. The Furs previously released the songs “Don’t Believe,” “You’ll Be Mine” and “No-One” off the upcoming album.
Made of Rain is produced by current Guns N’ Roses member Richard Fortus, who joined Furs principals Richard and Tim Butler in their mid-’90s band Love Spit Love. It can be pre-ordered now via Amazon.com.
The album will be the Furs’ first in nearly three decades, since the 1991 release of World Outside, which spawned the modern-rock radio hit “Until She Comes.” And it’s long been in the works: Butler and his brother Tim, the band’s bassist, have been talking in interviews about recording a new Psychedelic Furs album for at least the last six years.
Below, check out the new song.
