The Go! Team recently announced The Scene Between, the band’s first album in 4+ years, which will be out 23rd March via Memphis Industries. The Scene Between sees Ian Parton going back to The Go! Team’s roots: he wrote, performed, and produced the entire album himself, with the help of singers from around the world. With a heavy focus on melody and with samples treated as instruments rather than the basis for the songs themselves, The Scene Between is one of the finest albums in The Go! Team catalogue yet.
