Camera Obscura, the indie pop group from Glasgow, Scotland, has made a comeback after 11 years since their last album, Desire Lines, was released in 2013. The band, led by Tracyanne Campbell, has announced their new album Look To The East, Look To The West, which is set to be released on May 3 via Merge.

The band took a break in 2015 following the tragic death of their keyboardist, Carey Lander. During this time, Tracyanne Campbell launched her side project Tracyanne & Danny. In 2018, the band returned to the stage with plans for a new album, which was delayed due to the pandemic.

Look To The East, Look To The West was produced by Jari Haapalainen, who also worked on the albums Let’s Get Out Of This Country (2006) and My Maudlin Career (2009). As a preview, Camera Obscura released the first single titled “Big Love.” Tracyanne Campbell described the track as a tribute to Waylon Jennings, with a nod to Sandy Denny and the progressive rock band Scope. She explained that it’s a song about not looking back, having faith in the present and the future.

The full track list for Look To The East, Look To The West includes songs such as “Liberty Print,” “We’re Going To Make It In A Man’s World,” “Only A Dream,” “The Light Nights,” “Sleepwalking,” “Baby Huey (Hard Times),” “Denon,” “Pop Goes Pop,” “Sugar Almond,” and the title track “Look To The East, Look To The West.”

The new album marks a significant return for Camera Obscura, and fans are eagerly anticipating the release. With their unique indie pop sound and heartfelt lyrics, Look To The East, Look To The West is sure to be a hit. Keep an eye out for the album on May 3 and get ready to immerse yourself in the melodic world of Camera Obscura once again.
