My Big Day, the new album from British guitar band Bombay Bicycle Club is now available worldwide. The album features an eclectic host of guest vocalists that perfectly encapsulates the breadth of the band’s widespread appeal, including Chaka Khan, Damon Albarn, Jay Som, Nilüfer Yanya, and Holly Humberstone.
To celebrate the release, the band will host an album listening party for fans today on Discord, amidst an extensive sold-out instore/outstore across the UK in the coming weeks.
My Big Day and its preceding singles have been celebrated by fans and critics alike as some of Bombay Bicycle Club’s best ever work, 15 years into their career. Recent singles have been playlisted by BBC Radio 1 and 6 Music, and the band’s first ever appearance on “Later…with Jools Holland” will air later this year. They have also announced their biggest ever headline show for 2024 at London’s Alexandra Palace Park, following extensive EU and UK/IE tours in 2023-24. The impact the record has already had makes it clear that this is a band very much at their peak, continuing to exceed the expectations set by a wildly impressive career to date.
Jack sits on both sides of the glass for the duration of the record, having previously produced their fourth album So Long, See You Tomorrow, and co-production with John Congleton for 2020’s Everything Else Has Gone Wrong. Additional production comes from Paul Epworth on the track “Heaven” and Ben Allen who co-produces “Turn The World On.” The record was mixed by Dave Fridmann (renowned for his work with The Flaming Lips, Mercury Rev, MGMT, HAIM).
