Track Of The Day: The Cribs - 'An Ivory Hand'

The Cribs have announced details of their sixth studio album 'For All My Sisters'. It will be released on March 23 and was produced in New York by Ric Ocasek of The Cars. In a recent Facebook post the band said "I can’t believe it’s been nearly 3 years since Brazen Bull, but we have been working really hard behind the scenes, and we honestly think this is our best record so far. Easily... I know we always say that, but we’re all really excited about this one.” "I think this is the poppiest record since 'Men's Needs, Women's Needs, Whatever'," Ryan Jarman recently told the NME. "When we did 'In The Belly Of The Brazen Bull', we used that as a chance to get the more abrasive songs out. With this one we fancied having that contrast of going back to where we concentrate on the melodies."

"There's always been some reason why [every record] has to be better than the last. The last record was the first one back as a three-piece [after Johnny Marr's exit]. There was all this gravity and it had to be better. This one, because it's the first one of the next 10 years, you feel that gravity again." The first preview of the album comes in the form of this fuzzy grower which can be heard below... The band play an eight date UK tour in February.
