Listen: English Teacher Share Album Version of ‘R&B’ Ahead of Debut LP Launch

The fifth and final tease of what’s to be expected from the debut LP, ‘This Could Be Texas’, lands at our feet as the Northern brigade of sharp tongues reveal their latest iteration of a crowd favourite, ‘R&B’.

Before embarking on their largest UK headline tour to date, English Teacher, the trailblazing indie quartet from Leeds, look to what is coming on the 12th of April via Island Records, preceded by initial LP reveals including ‘Albert Road’ and ‘Nearly Daffodils’. The new version of a cult favourite, ‘R&B’ slots in nicely, marking our last hint with a renovated illustration that plays “an ode to 2021’s original ‘R&B’ video and to Douglas snogging himself.”

Talking more on the track, lead vocalist Lily Fontaine adds, “When I was with him I had writer’s block and to add insult to irony, the only idea I had was for an R&B top line-the genre people always assumed I worked in. As soon as he ended it, I converted that top line into the lyrics and riff for ‘R&B’, and took it to my three best mates. Putting the effort that you could potentially put into a partner, back into yourself and your career, is cool and sexy and gets you signed to Island Records and writing press quotes in a tour van in Holland and you get to meet Jools Holland. Thanks lad.”
