Squeeze Share “Happy Days,” From First New Album In 17 Years

Over the years, UK new wave hitmakers Squeeze have broken up on two separate occasions. Both times, they’ve gotten back together. Most recently, co-leaders Glenn Tilbrook and Chris Difford got back together in 2007 to tour. In 2010, they released the album Spot The Difference, which consisted entirely of new recordings of older songs, mostly so they could own their own recordings for once. But it’s been 17 years since the band’s last proper new album, 1998’s Domino. And now they’ve announced plans to release the limited-edition CD Cradle To The Grace, their first proper album since then. Its first single is “Happy Days,” a perfectly competent piece of British power-pop with a nice soul-influenced coda. Listen to it and check out the album’s tracklist below.
