Stardust and Water
Kevin and the whole team are dead excited to announce that a new album – Stardust and Water – will be released on November 29th 2020 – which is also Ray’s birthday. Any new album from the Immaculate Fools is exciting but this one has an extra bit of gloss on it – Andy Ross!
Yep – original Immaculate Fools member Andy has been working with Kevin, hidden away in Galicia as producer of the new album – and of course he has contributed vocals, guitars, keyboards and much more. It sounds fabulous with all the magic of the original band updated for these times.
November might seem like a long time away but you don’t have to wait that long to get a taster – a single from the album – Two to Tango will be available from July 29th for download or streaming on all the usual music streaming sites.
Want even more fun? Four singles will be released before the album – one every month. Each single will feature a section of the album cover – a fantastic portrait of Kevin by Quim Cabeza.

Sí, Andy, miembro original de Immaculate Fools, ha estado trabajando con Kevin, escondido en Galicia como productor del nuevo álbum, y por supuesto ha contribuido con voces, guitarras, teclados y mucho más. Suena fabuloso con toda la magia de la banda original actualizada para estos tiempos.

Reviews and comments from fans:
” I definitely think that Stardust and Water is the best of your later albums. There is an autobiographical romantic, philosophical and geographical journey through life and it’s ups and downs,beginnings and endings quality that I really like. It’s almost like there are various characters all trying to find their way home but not knowing quite where that is.Hints of Lou reed in some of the lyrics and that’s certainly no bad thing ! The whole thing hangs together really well. There is a coherence of production, playing and songwriting that has a mature quality that gives it that authentic ring of truth. There are no jarring elements or dubious playing. It’s your album, you haven’t been driven off course with it and that means the message gets through. I also think that now you have the raw Dirty Ray vocal to call on that adds an extra dimension and versatility that maybe the early immaculate fools stuff didn’t have. Your voice sounds really good in both modes”. – Ben, Hay on Wye
I’ve followed the Immaculate Fools since the release of Immaculate Fools 7″ single and I think I managed to get everything they’ve released. This week I received both the fantastic box set and the brand new album. I am completely blown away by Stardust & Water. I was surprised at just how happy it made me, hearing Kevin and Andy reconnecting with their own musical past. As a musician myself, I understand the need to move forward and to make music that is true to the moment, and I truly hope that this album represents where the band are at now. Almost back to where they started. I was thinking about the heavily delayed guitar lines of Hearts of Fortune and then I get to Aliens… just wonderful! Stardust and Water has got to be Kevin’s Sgt. Pepper. The whole album is truly wonderful from start to finish, a work of genius. I hope there’s plenty more from Kevin and Co. Please pass on my heartfelt thanks to all concerned with the creation of this album.
