More. Again. Forever

Album: More. Again. Forever (2020)

Songfacts®:

  • One of the most experimental songs Courteeneers have ever recorded, this combines an elastic dance punk groove with a spoken vocal. "That was this mad bassline I came up with and I just started talking over the top," frontman Liam Fray explained to Q magazine. "It's in that LCD Soundsystem world. I love all that, the repetition and the subtleties."
  • This is the title track of Courteeners sixth album. Fray explained to Radio X's Gordon Smart, the record's short, sharp name is a reference to "the incessant nature" of life in 2020... "Whether it's drinking or social media... it's more, more, more, more, more. Again. Forever. I felt like it needed that kind of full stop."
  • More. Again. Forever debuted at #2 on the UK album chart, Courteeneers highest chart placing to date.
  • The video is the third in a trilogy of visuals based on a story written for the band by author Emma Jane Unsworth. The story was made into a film, which the band split into three sections, or three separate Courteeners videos. This clip follows the ones for "Heavy Jacket" and "Better Man."
