Shopping announce new LP ‘The Official Body,’ share “The Hype”


UK-based trio Shopping will return with new album The Official Body on January 19 via Fatcat. The band made the record with producer (and onetime Orange Juice frontman) Edwyn Collins at his Clashnarrow studios. The first single is the album’s opening track, “The Hype,” which is one of the funkier (and catchier) songs they’ve done, while retaining that short, sharp, post-punk sound. You can watch the video for that, directed by Billy Easter and Jack Barraclough, and check out the album art and tracklist, below.

Shopping will be on tour this fall in the UK and Europe. No North American tour has been announced yet (they were here last year) but they’ll be over for SXSW so lets hope they play outside of Austin, too. Those dates are listed below.
