Razorlight returns with the first new music since 2018

Razorlight is working on a new album.

Razorlight confirmed last April that their classic line-up – Johnny Borrell, Björn Ågren, Carl Dalemo and Andy Burrows – were reuniting for a live show this summer after a 10-year hiatus and they have now revealed they plan to release new music.

Sharing professional photos of the whole band on Twitter, they posted: “Greetings 2022, here we are in Gloucestershire hard at work on album 5 of Razor.”

Andy previously admitted it was “amazing” to be back with the band.

He said: “It’s amazing. We spent the last week or two rehearsing. Playing these songs was an absolute joy. The emotions that were going through me when we started playing ‘America’, I forgot to play the first half of the song – it was absolutely crazy. It was amazing. It’s so powerful to play those old tunes. It’s very very special.

And Johnny was thrilled to have rebuilt his old friendships.

He said: “I’m really enjoying reconnecting with Andy and Carl, it’s like reconnecting with people. I’m enjoying it because you never want to lose friends. It’s a horrible thing to think about. That doesn’t really make sense. It definitely makes me feel good on a personal level.

“Creatively – amazing. We’ve been in the studio rehearsing and recording. As soon as the four of us are in the room, it just sounds amazing, straight away.

In 2020 guitarist Björn joined the band and Johnny admitted at the time that he hoped to persuade bassist Carl to make a comeback.

Razorlight’s last studio album was “Olympus Sleeping” in 2018.
