Title: Sports Team – Gulp Format: alternate sleeve + green coloured vinyl Label: Island Cat Num: Barcode: 0602445548354

Release date: September 23rd 2022

Britain’s most exciting breakthrough band of recent years, Sports Team, have announced details of their second studio album Gulp!, due for release on September 23rd via Island Records. The first taste of Gulp! came as Clara Amfo premiered the band’s new single ‘R Entertainment’ as her Hottest Record in the World on BBC Radio 1. Gulp! follows Sports Team’s 2020 Mercury Prize nominated debut album Deep Down Happy, which charted at #2 in the UK’s Official Charts, achieving the biggest vinyl sales for a debut British artist in 2020. Signposting a bold and ambitious new era for the band, Sports Team explain that ‘R Entertainment’ explores “The packaging down of all human experience into entertainment, prompted by the infinite scroll through social feeds and the manic formlessness of the images we are hit with every day. Graphic news interrupted by ads for season 17 of The Bodyguard, news as a rubbernecking, passively waiting for the next drop of horror as we flick through recipes.”
