Frightened Rabbit Announce New Album <i>Pedestrian Verse</i>

Frightened Rabbit  have announced that they will be releasing their fourth studio album, Pedestrian Verse on Feb. 5.

The Scottish rockers recorded Pedestrian Verse in the famous Monnow Valley Studio, which is located in Rockfield, South Wales. With the help of producer Leo Abrahams, Frightened Rabbit created a 12-track album, which according to lead singer Scott Hutchinson is Frightened Rabbit’s most interesting album to date. Hutchinson recently issued a statement describing how they picked the title Pedestrian Verse and how it challenged the band to produce better music.

“The title is taken from a lyric in State Hospital. I felt it was a nicely faceted title, with enough layered meaning to remain open to interpretation. Above all though, it was a gauntlet I threw down for myself. If you call your album Pedestrian Verse, you can’t settle for any old lyric. It forced me to better myself. In fact, I think we all stepped up on this album and I believe that our producer Leo Abrahams had a major role in that step. He threw our music into areas we had not previously imagined. More than any other record we’ve done this has been a genuine journey of discovery into new ways of working in order to develop and fully realize each of the songs. As a result, I think Pedestrian Verse the strongest and most interesting record we’ve made to date.”
