This is a record that I’ve been building up to for the last seven years,” says Supergrass frontman Gaz Coombes. Turn The Car Around is a record of feeling, an album that captures the ups and downs of modern life and all the small print in between. Gaz Coombes has emerged from the studio with the best work of his illustrious career.

When the planned run Supergrass dates were derailed by the pandemic in 2020, it gave Coombes the impetus to get to work on a new solo record. Turn The Car Around is not a pandemic record, more an album born out of what you discover about yourself when you’re forced to hit pause.

Once I got over the initial uncertainty that everyone was feeling in early 2020, everything aligned perfectly,” he recalls. “It was a moment of clarity, just knowing that this is the time. I need to be excited by music and I need to buzz off what I’m doing, so that’s when things moved up a gear.

Turn The Car Around is a record that captures where Gaz Coombes has been and where he’s heading, a stunning album from an artist in the midst of a creative purple patch. “The one thing that has really nourished me in the last ten years is the idea of evolving as an artist, evolving my writing to keep moving forward. I run on vibe. I always have.” The vibes have never been better. There’s just some days you feel like going back, but the only way is straight ahead.
