The Coral’s ‘That’s Where She Belongs’ Has A Wistful Feel

"This was me chasing sunlit shadows..."

The Coral have shared beautiful new single ‘That’s Where She Belongs’.

The Liverpool band are back, with ambitious plans for a new album. The incoming LP – their eleventh to date – lands on September 8th, and ‘Sea Of Mirrors’ is informed by Spaghetti Western scores, and some high profile guest spots.

With spoken word from Cillian Murphy – amongst others – The Coral aren’t holding back; indeed, a second album – ‘Holy Joe’s Coral Island Medicine Show’ – will be given a physical-only release on the same day.

New song ‘That’s Where She Belongs’ blends subtle psych-pop aspects with their folksy sound, its acoustic lilt taking on a late summer feel. It’s pristine Coral – a beautiful fusion of light and shade, a perfect sing-along melody married to that slight twinge of melancholy.

James Skelly says of the track: 

“This was me chasing sunlit shadows, trying to capture the beauty of the summer. For some strange reason, I feel a duty to do that from time to time. It didn’t work first time around but we took it into the studio and used some old tricks we’ve learned – editing the violins into the chorus, turning almost everything backwards and adding some Glenn Campbell guitars – and we came out with the hazy summer psychedelia the album needed to break up the intensity.”

Tune in now.
