As Stereophonics celebrate over a quarter-century as one of the key cornerstones of British rock, today they return with ‘Oochya!,’ their acclaimed new full-length album that calls upon certain tones, feelings and themes that’ll resonate with fans young and old alike. Frontman Kelly Jones explains: “It’s quite an emotional record. At times it’s very nostalgic. The whole album is melodic. You put it on and it’s one of those albums you don’t really want to turn off because it keeps going onto different styles and the songs hold your attention.” ‘Oochya!’ is now available via Stylus Records through Ignition Records Ltd.
Additionally, Stereophonics recently released the grand music video for “Forever,” a track that oozes with glistening guitar and sweeping vocal melodies, paired with romantic storytelling. A reflective track that evokes freedom and the open road, the bridge builds to a euphoric chorus where Jones is heard bellowing “I wish I could fly away forever, I wish I could take away the pain from you and release you.” Letting go is felt in the heights of his singing, as much as it is when Jones puts pen to paper. “Forever” follows the previously released “Hanging On Your Hinges“ and “Do Ya Feel My Love?“, which has now received over two million streams across all platforms.

With ‘Oochya!,’ Kelly Jones continues to cement his place amongst the great British songwriters. Having now achieved 7 UK Number 1 albums, 10 top 10 albums, 23 Platinum Sales Awards, 8.5 million albums sold in the UK alone, 5 BRIT nominations and 1 BRIT Award win, Stereophonics stand as undeniable giants of British music.
