Sad Happy
Circa Waves
Prolifica Inc.
Catalogue Number
Release Date
March 13, 2020

An album of our times, ‘Sad Happy’ is formed of two diametrically distinctive sides – the first half of the record contains the Sad tracks, the latter the Happy tracks. Released on March 13th via Prolifica Inc / [PIAS], the album will be available on CD, standard single LP and a limited edition gold 2LP where the album is physically split in to Sad and Happy LPs.

Lead single ‘Jacqueline’ is unveiled today as the first taste of ‘Sad Happy’. Listen here. An infectious, Soweto flavoured groove, ‘Jacqueline’ is another bold slice of bright, life-affirming pop from the pen of Kieran Shudall, who is establishing himself as one of Britain’s most prolific young songwriters. With it’s infectious chorus and refrain of ‘Good times are coming around the bend’, Jacqueline is at once instantly recognisable and also another bold sonic leap forward for Circa Waves. It’s a song that’ll sit effortlessly amongst a setlist already brimming with anthems.

‘Sad Happy’ was written and produced in full by Kieran Shudall, and mixed by Grammy winners Dan Grech-Marguerat and Matt Wiggins. Today’s album announcement comes a little over six months after the release of April’s Top Ten Charting UK Album ‘What’s It Like Over There’. The prolific nature of Kierans’ writing, coupled with Circa Waves relentless appetite for playing live and their own label imprint, are cementing the Liverpool four piece’s reputation as one of the UK’s most dynamic and exciting bands.
