UK chamber-folk band The Leisure Society have this week announced plans to release their brand new album The Fine Art Of Hanging On. Due on the 13th April this will be the band’s first album since 2013’s Alone Aboard The Ark.

The Fine Art of Hanging On is a recurrent, linking theme, although this wasn’t an intentional concept album,” The Leisure Society frontman Nick Hemming explained. “It’s about clinging to something – be that a relationship, a career, or life itself. All the way through writing the album a friend of mine was battling cancer. I reached out by sending him the rough demos of this album. By giving him this access to the work in progress and by him giving feedback, we formed a close bond. Sadly he lost his battle, but his input and presence is there in the album.”

The full tracklisting as well as a stream of the album’s first single, “Tall Black Cabins”, is below:

1. The Fine Art Of Hanging On
2. Nothing Like This
3. Tall Black Cabins
4. The Undefeated Ego
5. Outside In
6. I’m A Setting Sun
7. You Are What You Take
