Skunk Anansie release brand new single 'Can't Take You Anywhere'


‘CAN’T TAKE YOU ANYWHERE’ BRAND NEW SINGLE RELEASED LISTEN HERE UK & EU HEADLINE TOUR SPRING 2022 LONDON BRIXTON ACADEMY ON MARCH 25TH **NEW UK SHOW ADDED DUE TO PUBLIC DEMAND** APPEARING AT GRACE JONES’ MELTDOWN & GLASTONBURY IN JUNE

British rock icons Skunk Anansie have released their brand new single ‘Can’t Take You Anywhere’, a deliciously sinister slice of tense drama, powered along by a roaring chorus. Channelling the same dark power as Depeche Mode and Placebo, with pummelling rhythms, twisted electronics and crystalline guitars, Skin tells the tale of a friend or lover causing chaos wherever they go. Discussing the song she explains, “This track is a double-edged sword. We all have that one friend that we love but is a total embarrassment to us, a mate that has no off button and no filter. So if they aren’t losing their phone/keys/coat, they’re saying some stuff that will defo get you cancelled by all your other mates. This song is about how polarised the world is now, and how careful you need to be. It’s about dealing with the new world order of friendship, as never before have I had great long term friends develop completely opposing views to mine. It's about having to navigate and understand people, keeping the love and respect but also standing firm in your opinions." Skunk Anansie will be heading out on a massive European tour this spring, featuring rescheduled dates from their hugely acclaimed 25th Anniversary tour, with new shows also added due to phenomenal demand. The band will be supported variously by New Pagans, Gen And The Degenerates, Holocene and Shelf Lives with Big Joanie, Sweet Crisis, Morganway and Dikta also appearing at different shows. The band will also be appearing as part of the 2022 Meltdown Festival in June, which this year is curated by Grace Jones, along with a long-awaited return to Glastonbury Festival, where they famously headlined the Pyramid Stage in 1999.

The Daily Star
