The Nutty Boys’ new album
Madness return in October with Can’t Touch Us Now, their first new album since 2o12’s Oui Oui Si Si Ja Ja Da Da.
The full track listing hasn’t been revealed just yet, but tracks will include Mr Apples, Mumbo Jumbo, Can’t Touch Us Now and the Amy Winehouse referencing Blackbird. Check out the amusing ‘press conference’ below, with the band announcing the long-player to London’s Chelsea Pensioners.
As well as standard vinyl and CD editions, there will be a limited two-CD deluxe box set of Can’t Touch Us Now which comes packaged with a unique Madness edition of ‘The Greatest Show On Earth’, a vintage-style game created by friend-of-the-band Dee Jay Wheelie bag, where players take to the stage in their very own theatre and entertain one another with 36 special edition performance cards all inspired by the songs and lyrics of Can’t Touch Us Now. Perhaps more importantly, this also delivers an extra disc of bonus material (no details yet revealed) exclusive only to this edition, as well as a fold out booklet.
At the moment the deluxe edition can only be found on the band’s official store, but we think that will change soon (this post will be updated).
Can’t Touch Us Now will be released on 28 October 2016. A UK tour will follow in December.
