Sleaford Mods Release New Single ‘Force 10 From Navarone’ feat. Dry Cleaning’s Florence Shaw
February 8, 2023
Sleaford Mods have released their sinister new single ‘Force 10 From Navarone‘, featuring guest vocals from Dry Cleaning frontwoman Florence Shaw. The song is taken from the Nottingham duo’s forthcoming album UK GRIM, which will be released on 10 March 2023. Watch the brand new video directed by acclaimed photographer Eddie Whelan.
Driven by urgent electronic pulses crafted by Sleaford Mods’ Andrew Fearn, the track brings together two vocalists who appreciate and understand the power of words, as Florence Shaw’s lines playfully intertwine and challenge Mods’ Jason Williamson who brings a true sense of drama to the track. Menacing yet inviting, ‘Force 10 From Navarone’ is an incantation for modern existence sealed in the heart of a throbbing, minimal banger.
‘We’re big fans of Dry Cleaning and knew Flo would be perfect for the track. She’s the real deal and conjures the inspiration I get from the likes of Wu-Tang in the way she uses one word to convey a whole story.’ – Jason Williamson
To mark UK GRIM‘s release, Sleaford Mods will play two special live shows which fans can access by purchasing the album. Sleaford Mods will play Nottingham Rock City on 14 March followed by a show at Pryzm in London in conjunction with record shop Banquet on 15 March.
Meanwhile, a limited edition t-shirt featuring one of the bespoke artworks created by Cold War Steve for UK GRIM has gone on sale, with proceeds going to the charity Shelter and can be purchased here.
