Cornershop Unveil New Album ‘Urban Turban’


Brit-pop survivors and the criminally underrated Cornershop have announced the details of forthcoming album entitled ‘Urban Turban’. Due to drop on May 14th, the record quickly follows 2011′s release ‘Cornershop And The Double ‘O’ Groove Of’, and will be the eighth studio album the London-based band will have released.

Each of the album’s eleven tracks are will feature a collaboration with another artist, ranging from the upcoming and critically acclaimed Soko, to the children of Lancashire Castle Hill primary school. The album will be preceded by single ‘Milkin’ It’ on 9th April.

Perhaps best known in the UK for the 1997 hit ‘Brimful of Asha’, and maybe more so the Fatboy Slim remix, the band have faced a career’s worth of claims the outfit were simply a ‘one-hit-wonder’, despite widespread critical acclaim over a near fifteen year career. In the US the band are best known for their 1997 track ‘Candyman’ featuring on a 2008 Nike advertisement for the Lebron James VI shoe.
