Ribbon Around The Bomb,’ offers fans the first taste of new music from Blossoms since their “vibrant single” (NME) “Care For,” which was released last year. “Care For” gained great support from radio at home in the UK, with the track being playlisted and made the ‘Hottest Record’ by Radio 1, as well as getting on the B-List with Radio 2.

Speaking about the new album and single, Blossoms ’ Tom Ogden reveals, 
“While on tour in 2019 in Mexico, I visited Frida Kahlo’s house. Looking at her paintings on show, someone had described one of them as being like a Ribbon Around The Bomb,’. I immediately thought that it was a great title for a song and album because of the imagery that it evoked in my mind. I thought about how lots of things in life could be described as being a ribbon around a bomb in the sense that as people we often dress things up which have a darkness lying beneath them.
The band’s new album is produced by their consistent and renowned collaborators James Skelly and Rich Turvey and revolves around a central character ‘The Writer’.

Tom Ogden explains: 
“The more songs I wrote, the more I realized that the writer referenced in the songs was in fact me. Having been so busy for the past eight years, I and the band have never really had the chance to step back and reflect on what we’ve achieved. You’re so focused on the future; write the next album then tour. Your life is usually mapped out at least two years in advance. ”Standout tracks on the record include “Ode To NYC,” described by Tom as “a love letter to my favorite city, as well as my wife.”

“The Writer
” deals with the fear of and frustration associated with writer's block and “Everything About You'', one of the album’s only love songs, which Tom says is “as honest as they come.” “Visions” meanwhile contains one of the album’s key lyrics “Was I complete at 23,” as Tom explains. 

“At 23 I had just had a number 1 album and begun my relationship with my now wife Katie. Reflecting on what I’d achieved at such a young age left me wondering, what now?”

Ribbon Around The Bomb music video and lyrics for you to enjoy! 

Lyrics 
She said life gets no better and no worse.
Cos where we came from they tell you it’s a curse.
Hiding places lonely as she does.
Their smiling faces no they don’t need us tonight.
Are we one ribbon around the bomb? My nocturnal creature, she doesn’t sleep.
For all the sounds here they’re so strange to me.
Then she said ‘boy meet me by the beach on the edge of the retreating sea tonight’.
Are we one ribbon around the bomb? Take me home, ribbon around the bomb.
As you gaze from your heavy heart.
No, we won’t do you any harm.
Plenty of small ones and many large.
Into your arms, until we part.
Are we one ribbon around the bomb? Take me home, ribbon around the bomb.
