Simon & The Astronauts Ft. Rachel Haden Announce New Self-Titled Album
UK based writing / recording collective Simon and The Astronauts have joined with acclaimed US musician Rachel Haden (The Haden Triplets, Jimmy Eat World, Weezer, The Rentals, Todd Rundgren, Hadestown) for their second full-length, self-titled album due out April 2022 via Ring Records.
A new single “Ten League Boots” is out today.
Simon Wells of the band says, “It’s a song about change for yourself or whatever you choose. It’s my take on Seven-league boots to make your own moonshot.”
Seven-league boots are an element in European folklore. The boots allow the person wearing them to take strides of seven leagues per step, resulting in great speed. The boots are often presented by a magical character to the protagonist to aid in the completion of a significant task.
