Ahead of the March 22nd release of their new album Glasgow Eyes with the singles “jamcod” and “Chemical Animal“, The Jesus and Mary Chain now unveil their latest track ‘Girl 71’ via Fuzz Club. Playing melodic, hook-laden power-pop with a gritty garage-rock edge, ‘Girl 71’ comes from the most instantly alluring extreme of The Jesus and Mary Chain’s sonic spectrum. A song of redemption from self-loathing through others, ‘Girl 71’ also delivers another enticing touch by contrasting Jim Reid’s distinctive drawling lead vocal with sweet backing harmonies courtesy of Rachel Conte.

As with the rest of the Glasgow Eyes album, ‘Girl 71’ was produced by brothers. Jim and WIlliam Reid at Mogwai’s Castle of Doom studio. Anticipation for the album has already seen three vinyl formats sell-out, but double colored vinyl and double black vinyl are still available, both of which feature artwork from William Reid. The album release has moved back slightly to March 22nd due to a delay in vinyl production.

The Jesus and Mary Chain’s extensive 40th anniversary headline tour of the UK, Ireland and Europe has just been boosted with confirmation of special guests Aircooled (featuring JAMC drummer Justin Welch) and deathcrash, while their summer festival schedule is also taking shape.
