The Maccabees are pleased to announce the release of Cosmo.
Cosmo was made by Felix White with friends. It is available on very limited 10” picture disc vinyl - complete with CD, a perforable poster and handwritten lyrics - here, or in store from Sister Ray, Rough Trade East and West and from Resident Music in Brighton. It is also available in digital format (which comes with an extra track) now, here.
It was written and recorded in odd weekends and borrowed moments between recording Given To The Wild and finished at the start of this year. All music on the e.p. was made by Felix and features guest vocals and collaborations with Jack Penate, Florence Welch, Johnny Bramwell (I am Kloot) and Adam Day. Jessie Ware, Hugo White and Jamie N Commons also feature on backing vocals whilst Sam Doyle played drums on the record.
You can watch the video for the track ‘Yalla’ here.
A video has been made for each song with George Belfield and all can be seen on the website here.

Thank you, and hope you enjoy.
Stay tuned for special announcement from Felix on Monday…
Festival season finished for us last week at Arenal Sound in Valencia and we’d just like to say thank you to all those that came and saw across the summer. It was a bit interim for us, the shows coming in between sessions for writing the record, so even though it was a bit more stop/start our end we still got in at least twelve (I forget exactly) festivals in. I know there were a fair few people that travelled through different countries to see us a few times so special thanks to all of you. Playing in spells whilst making the record has served to keep the whole thing going rather than taking any kind of substantial time out, so we are hopeful we will be able to get our fourth album out and with you all some time around the start of next year. It will feature something else to go alongside it, which will be a first for us, and so far the music has been coming along quicker and better than before. Obviously we can’t be the judges of that really until it’s done and out there. But it’s exciting. Again, thank you for coming along and singing and making the run of shows fun, Latitude especially was up there with some of the more memorable ones on tour with ‘Given To The Wild’. There’ve been some really good guitar records come out this year, so hope they’ve caught your imagination as they have ours. Be in touch in the not too distant future.
