The Guardian is premiering the first single from Peggy Sue’s highly anticipated forthcoming full length Choir of Echoes. 'Idle' is available to stream above. Of the new track, the band says “Idle is a song about being unemployed and incurably thoughtful. The opening and closing parts are a kind of troubled gospel song — a prayer for purpose in the knowledge that the purpose will probably not be a ‘good’ one. It’s about impatience and distractions and thinking about things too much. And of course it’s about a boy.” Choir of Echoes is out January 28 on Yep Roc Records.

Choir of Echoes was produced at the legendary Rockfield Studio in South Wales by Jimmy Robertson and mixed by longtime collaborator John Askew. Of the record, the band says “Choir of Echoes is an album about singing. About losing your voice and finding it again. Voices keeping each other company and voices competing for space. The call and response of the kindest and the cruelest words. Choruses. Duets. Whispers and shouts.”

The new album follows 2011’s Acrobats, which NPR called “mountainous and brooding.” Additionally, 2012 saw the self-release of a collection of reinterpretations of the groundbreaking soundtrack to Kenneth Anger’s 1963 cult classic short film Scorpio Rising. The 12 tracks resulted from their performances playing live alongside a screening of the film, and were issued as a series of 1,000 hand stamped, packaged and signed CDs.

Peggy Sue is singer-guitarists Rosa Slade and Katy Young and drummer Olly Joyce. Since the release of Acrobats, the band has toured across Europe and North American with the likes of Jack White, Wild Flag, Joan As Policewoman and labelmates First Aid Kit, including a recent stop on the main stage of this summer’s Green Man Festival.
