Recorded in Nashville, Modern Blues is an electric, eclectic, soulful, bold and gloriously freewheeling rock 'n' roll record, arriving at a time when the relevance and popular reach of The Waterboys has never been greater. In 2013 Ellie Goulding scored a top 3 UK hit with How Long Will I Love You and earlier this year Prince performed The Whole of the Moon at Ronnie Scott's in London. In recent times A Pagan Place has become a live staple for US indie band The War on Drugs. Modern Blues contains nine more passionate songs, evoking the very best of The Waterboys past work while forging forth to explore new ground.
