Barbara Barbara, We Face a Shining Future.

However the volume levels are inconsistent. I have to raise the volume for If Rah. Volume is low on this pressing and it's probably the album I have to turn my knob furthest for, but the sound quality holds up. Jacket and inner are thick and nice quality. Reply Notify me Helpful.

The band will also take to the road in March 2016 for limited number of shows in Europe.

Underworld have announced a new album, their first since 2010's Barking. Barbara Barbara, we face a shining future is out March 18, 2016 on Caroline International. That's the artwork above. Listen to a teaser above, and scroll down for the tracklist. The duo also embark on a European tour in March; check out the dates below.

This is true on their latest album, Barbara Barbara, We Face A Shining Future – up to a point. There aren't any 10-minute plus tracks, but Hyde and Smith clearly dip into their past reservoir of maximalism without veering into nostalgic plagiarism. When Underworld introduce the beat of album opener 'I Exhale', for about ten seconds there is some reason to worry. At best, the beat is glam-rockish. At worst, it sounds almost like Peaches

Dance survivors Underworld will release their ninth album, Barbara Barbara, we face a shining future, on March 18. So what’s in this shining future? Well, according to a press release it’s the elegiac swoop of strings as they stretching out across off-world electronics; a demented lupine howl that curls itself into an unshakeable earworm; celestial techno and South American acoustics; voices that warp into harmonic riffs; found lyrics that form fine-tuned monolgues. Underworld will also play a limited number of European shows in March. Stream the first taste of Barbara Barbara below.

And rediscovering it lit the touchpaper for the album we are here to discuss: the joyously alive Barbara, Barbara, We Face A Shining Future, an album with a title as peculiar and wonderful as all the others before it, which arrives this month full of heart, soul and brilliant noise. Three days before we meet in their rural Essex idyll, Underworld are in Bristol, kicking off their new album campaign with a televised headline slot at Colston Hall for the 6 Music Festival. In two weeks they will perform a rooftop gig in Japan and a spot on the country’s equivalent of Top of the Pops, on which only a handful of western artists have played, including Madonna and Metallica.
