Modern English Detail New Album 1 2 3 4, Share “Not My Leader”

Modern English have formally announced their new comeback album, 1 2 3 4, out February 23rd. As a preview, the British rockers have shared the latest single, “Not My Leader.”

1 2 3 4 marks the band’s first album of new material in eight years and was produced by Mario J. McNulty (David Bowie, Lou Reed, Nine Inch Nails). Mixed and mastered at Abbey Road by Cenzo Townsend, the 10-track effort revisits themes from their ’80s LPs After the Snow and Ricochet Days, like the environment, aging, failed relationships, and love.

Meanwhile, songs like “Not My Leader” are a scorching indictment of modern politics in the US and UK. “It’s like you’ve never tried,” vocalist Robbie Grey sings. “Just to stop the lies/ You’re just wasting all our time.” Stream the single below.

In a statement, Grey explained the inspiration for the track. “I remember first coming to America in the early ’80s,” he said. “We had Margaret Thatcher and you had Ronald Reagan. And then fast forward to today to Donald Trump and all the politicians and corporate organizations that have followed — along with their corruption and greed. It’s the same thing 40 years later, really. It’s the same old shit that makes the ordinary person feel sick. ‘Not My Leader’ is a song against those people.”

“Not My Leader” arrives after the previous singles “Long in the Tooth” and “Crazy Lovers.” 1 2 3 4 is the follow-up to 2016’s Take Me to the Trees.

Modern English have mapped out an international tour in support of 1 2 3 4, including supporting dates for The Buzzcocks and headlining appearances on the traveling ’80s nostalgia Totally Tubular Festival.
