Shame are back with their new track 'Alphabet', and it's been worth the wait

Shame have dropped their much-teased new single, 'Alphabet'.

The addictive track - out now via Dead Oceans - marks their first new material since the release of their debut album 'Songs of Praise' in 2018 (which saw them take to the cover of Dork, 'FYI').

Frontman Charlie Steen explains: "Alphabet is a direct question, to the audience and the performer, on whether any of this will ever be enough to reach satisfaction. At the time of writing it, I was experiencing a series of surreal dreams where a manic subconscious was bleeding out of me and seeping into the lyrics. All the unsettling and distressing imagery I faced in my sleep have taken on their own form in the video.”

The band have also announced a new show: they'll play London’s Electric Brixton on 22nd April.

In the meantime, check out 'Alphabet' below.
