Polar Bear - new single and album
Published 24 February 2015 by DM

In the time it takes to say “2014 Mercury Prize shortlisted album In Each And Every One”, Polar Bear have returned with a brand new album. ‘Dont Let The Feeling Go’ is the first single from their upcoming sixth album Same As You. Featuring bandleader Sebastian Rochford alongside Hannah Darling on vocal duties, it finds Polar Bear at their most direct: the song’s infectious life-affirming mantra stays with you long after the track has ended.

Given its short gestation, it is striking how far removed the new album is from its immediate predecessor. Inspired by Seb’s time in the Mojave Desert, there is a startling freshness in the songs, both thematically and sonically. After the dark complexity of recent output, Same As You is presented in sharp focus, as inclusive and accessible as the title suggests, while still maintaining the playful experimentation on which the band has made its name.

Read what Seb has to say about the new album and single here.

Some great reviews for Same As You already in:
“A joyous affirmation of positivity” 4/5 Mojo
“Their most direct and uplifting yet. ‘Dont Let The Feeling Go’ is just a spoonfed breakbeat away from pop gold” 8/10 Uncut
“The UK’s most forward-thinking jazz act… make dazzling return” 4/5 Q

Same As You is released March 30th and is available to pre-order from Polar Bear’s Bandcamp (including merch bundles) and the Leaf store on CD, digital and limited edition double vinyl LP + CD.

‘Dont Let The Feeling Go’ is out now, and is available to download for free if you pre-order the album.

Polar Bear are touring in Europe this month and in the UK in April. Details on our live page.
