Lovejoy have gained a reputation for providing sophisticated indie music.

In the late nineties and early noughties, Lovejoy released a string of well received and now sought-after singles and albums, mostly on Santa Barbara’s Matinee Recordings, also playing shows in Scandinavia and Europe, as well as in the UK. They took an extended sabbatical from 2007, following the devastating loss of long-time friend, confidante and collaborator Keith Girdler (Blueboy), only returning to the studio in 2022.

The years have been kind to Dick Preece’s song writing sensibilities.

Lovejoy make a stunning return with their brilliant new album ‘…And It’s Love!’. Through eleven shimmering, lushly produced tracks, beautifully bound together by the central themes of love, loss and human connections, the album invites the listener to immerse themselves in Lovejoy’s world. A kind of concept album, the songs on ‘…And It’s Love!’ weave and meld together into a narrative soundscape of tender moments of love and loss that sound both reassuringly familiar and yet totally modern.

Limited to 500 copies, the album includes collaborations from former label mate Keris Howard (Brighter, Trembling Blue Stars, Harper Lee), and long-time Lovejoy co-vocalist Ally Board, along with one or two other special guests. Added support, encouragement and endorsement came from former Creation Records’ boss Alan McGee (Biff Bang Pow!) and pop genius Edward Ball (TVPs, The Times etc), who also both provide sleeve notes (as well as the two songs that Lovejoy covered on the album).

Lovejoy’s Dick Preece says: ‘This album explores how Love’s presence or its absence defines every meaningful aspect of our lives. That we struggle sometimes to define what love is, in the many forms it takes, is neither here nor there. The big moments, from beginning to end are shaped by love of one kind or another. This is our take on some of those moments’.

Limited to 500 copies, on Solid White vinyl, with printed inner sleeve, this will be available via the label, the group and all very good record outlets.
