The The returns after 25 years with a new album

The The returns after 25 years. The post-punk and new wave group led by Matt Johnson, author of what many consider one of the best albums of the 80s and even in history, 'Soul Mining', will release a new album called 'Ensoulment' on the next 6 of September.

This is The The's first album in almost three decades: The The's last album was released in 2000 under the title 'NakedSelf'.

The current lineup of The The consists, in addition to Johnson, of James Eller on bass, DC Collard on keyboards, Earl Harvin on drums and Barrie Cadogan on guitar. Johnny Marr returned to The The in 2017 but has not participated in the creation of this new album.

The first preview of 'Ensoulment' is 'Cognitive Dissident', the creeping and dark song that will open the album. This is how the tracklist looks:
01 Cognitive Dissident
02 Some Days I Drink My Coffee By The Grave Of William Blake
03 Zen & The Art Of Dating
04 Kissing The Ring Of POTUS
05 Life After Life
06 I Want To Wake Up With You
07 Down By The Frozen River
08 Risin' Above The Need
09 Linoleum Smooth To The Stockinged Foot
10 Where Do We Go When We Die?
11 I Hope You Remember (the things I can't forget)
12 A Rainy Day In May
