Doves’ forthcoming release The Universal Want, drops on September 11, via IMPERIAL/Virgin/EMI. Today, Doves has unveiled a new version of “Carousels” remixed by The Comet Is Coming. With the track, the cosmically-minded jazz voyagers pull wind-instrumentation to the fore, isolating Jez Williams’ vocal to become an ethereal counterpoint to Goodwin’s enduring warmth and create chasms of space, within which rolling clouds of intense atmosphere develop.
Inspired by their new tracks, “Carousels” and “Prisoners,” Jimi Goodwin, Andy and Jez Williams take their sweeping, emotive live experience indoors for the first time since their Royal Albert Hall comeback show in March 2019. The 17-date tour will take place next March & April, and includes what will be an emotional homecoming at Manchester’s O2 Apollo. Tickets go on general sale Friday, July 31.
