Teenage Fanclub Shares “Tired Of Being Alone” 

Earlier this year, Teenage Fanclub announced news of their new album Nothing Lasts Forever (Merge Records) out September 22, 2023 in the U.S. and on their own label PeMa in the UK/Europe (pre-order). The band previously shared the lead track “Foreign Land,” and today they are excited to release their new single and album highlight, “Tired Of Being Alone.” A wistful beauty written by Raymond McGinley, the track comes accompanied by a video shot in Norway last weekend where the band was playing a couple of festivals.

Commenting on the track, Raymond McGinley says: “Towards the end of our session in Rockfield Studios making the album, I woke up in the middle of the night. There was a guitar next to the bed. I picked it up and this song came out. The words for the chorus were there already. I recorded a rough version on my phone and then went back to sleep. We recorded the song later that day. As a band we like to trust our instincts and let things happen. As with Norman’s song ‘Foreign Land,’ this song only exists because we decided to go to the studio and make a record. If we’d waited for the stars to align first before recording, we’d still be waiting now.”
