Last week a video was leaked from a Kasabian gig in Paris, which featured one of the band’s new songs from their awaited new album, 48:13 – so named because that is the length of the album. The video showed Kasabian playing one of the heaviest songs they have ever written entitled Bumblebee and by jove it is a goodun. It’s the second song on the new album, which is due for release on the 9th June.
When asked about the new direction they have taken Sergio said, “We had the confidence to be more direct, more honest with this album. I started to strip away layers rather than to just keep adding” and you can tell from what’s been heard to far.
As one of the headliners at Glastonbury this year, the band are releasing 48:13 at just the right time and I can’t wait to hear it in full, as well as see them play it live at this year’s festivals. Bring on Kasabian in a field with beer!
