Razorlight return from 10 year hiatus with four new tracks

Indie-rock band Razorlight sure know how to make a comeback. Following a 10 year hiatus (we can’t believe it’s been that long either), they have returned with not one, but FOUR new tracks.

If that wasn’t enough, the band, best known for their 2006 number one hit ‘America’, have also announced details of a brand new album called Olympus Sleeping and a tour.

Kicking off with the new tracks, Razorlight have unveiled four songs: album title track ‘Olympus Sleeping’, the punchy ‘Got To Let The Good Times Back Into Your Life’, the raucous ‘Japanrock’, and the infectious ‘Sorry?’.

Speaking about their return, frontman Johnny Borrell said: “We’ve been away for a long time and wanted to give more to the fans than just one single. I’m really excited about the album and really excited about doing Razorlight again.”
