To celebrate twelve years since Doves formed and to chronicle a career to inspire envy- with two Mercury nominated albums and worldwide sales of over 2 million- the band will release their definitive collection, The Places Between: The Best of Doves on April 20, 2010. To coincide with this release a new single, “AndalucÃa” will be released on April 6, 2010.
“AndalucÃa” was recorded in the barn in Cheshire, England where last year’s critically heralded Kingdom of Rust was recorded. Much of Doves body of work is an ode to the north of England but this song appears to tell of warmer pastures. The song surges towards its rousing final chorus with orchestration colliding with a tender vocal from Jimi Goodwin. “AndalucÃa” stands alongside Doves finest work and will no doubt seamlessly sit amongst classics such as “Black And White Town”, “Kingdom Of Rust” and “There Goes The Fear”.
