Noughties indie band reuniting for first new album in 16 years – produced by 70s disco icon Nile Rogers | The Sun

INDIE rock band The Zutons have reunited for their first album in 16 years.

The group was first formed in 2001 in Liverpool with guitarist Dave McCabe, saxaphone Abi Harding and drummer Sean Payne.

They released their debut album, Who Killed…… The Zutons? in May 2004 and achieved UK chart success with Why Won't You Give Me Your Love? and Valerie, with the latter track covered by Mark Ronson, with lead vocals provided by Amy Winehouse in 2007.

In 2009 the band quietly split just months after releasing their third album, You Can Do Anything.

The group reunited back in 2016 and again in 2019 to commemorate and perform their debut album.

Now die-hard fans will be delighted to know that the trio will be returning to the stage with their new album The Big Decider.

It was recorded at Abbey Road Studios with songwriter and producer Nile Rodgers, alongside the band’s original producer Ian Broudie.

And fans won't have to wait long as it is set for release on April 26.

The official press release said of the album: “It was wrestled into shape under the kind of steam that only decades-long friendships – with all their messy fall-outs, make-ups, breakdowns and ultimately love – can muster”.

They are also set to tour once again in the new year.

The members were also brought together after Dave's stay in rehab, which prompted them to reunite – as Abi

Abi shared with NME: “Dave has been through an awful lot in the last few years, and these things have obviously really impacted him.

"But his songwriting has only got better. Now he spends more time on his songs."

Meanwhile Dave said that working with Chic legend Nile was “an amazing experience and "gave me a confidence that I’ve never felt before making a record”.

The tour will kick off in January and visiting a number of cities across the UK next year, including Blackpool, Huddersfield, Milton Keynes, Norwich, Northampton and more.
