Currently celebrating their 40th anniversary year, In The Nursery will release a brand new studio album in late April 2022. Entitled ‘HUMBERSTONE’, the family surname of core group members Klive and Nigel, it is a deeply personal record that sees them in reflective mood as a year in which they also turned 60 comes to a close.
“We have always needed a reason to make music, a rationale for its creation and existence,” they state. “As composers, the two of us are conscious of the connection between music and memory. The loss of family is a strong emotion, one that we’ve harnessed to revisit our past. Our antecedents have been a catalyst and a stimulus for this new album and it has been good to reconnect and remember.”
Pre-order the album now on the ITN Bandcamp site and receive an immediate download of ‘Ektachrome (The Animator)’, in part an homage to Herb Alpert & The Tijuana Brass, of which Nigel & Klive simply comment “imagine home cinema in the ’70s accompanied by your father’s choice record collection.”
