In April, Dutch band Pip Blom released ‘Tiger,’ their first single since sharing 2021’s sophomore album Welcome Break. At the time, the band referenced a new, forthcoming album. Now, we’re getting all of the details, plus a new single, ‘Is This Love?’ featuring Alex Kapranos of Franz Ferdinand. Produced by Dave McCracken, Bobbie will be out October 20 via Heavenly Recordings.
Talking about ‘Is This Love?’ and the process of collaborating with Kapranos, the band said: “The nice thing about working with Alex, besides the fact that the atmosphere was really good, was that we both had quite different perspectives. Whereas I am a bit more rock by nature, Alex is a lot funkier. And that turned out to be the perfect addition for this song, both in the verses and completely in the chorus. Never before has such a funky Pip Blom song appeared, and we all absolutely love it.”
