Madness Announce New Album ‘Can’t Touch Us Now’
‘Can’t Touch Us Now’, out on October 28, is Madness’ 12th album and follows 2012’s ‘Oui Oui Si Si Ja Ja Da’. It was produced by their regular producer Clive Langer with Liam Watson at Watson’s studio Toe Rag in East London.
The album includes first single ‘Mr Apples’ and ‘Blackbird’, which was written about Suggs meeting Amy Winehouse shortly before her death in 2011. A limited-edition box-set version of the album comes with a free board game, The Greatest Show On Earth, made by the band’s friend Dee Jay Wheelie Bag. It also includes a second disc of exclusive songs.
