5Rebbeccas Review

Dundee group The View have announced details of their comeback single "5 Rebeccas", to be released on October 27th.
The single comes after a series of highly productive recording sessions with producer Owen Morris. Responsible for the glistening sheen that accompanies such era defining classics as "Definitely Maybe" and "A Northern Soul", Morris has given the band lee-way to produce something quite special.

The View debuted new material in a headline performance at the Clash Arena at Rockness this summer, and Clash were invited backstage to listen to the new album in its entirety. An assured second album, it finds the band at comfort in a studio setting. Retaining their familiar pop touch, it nonetheless expands and improves on the raucous sound of their debut album "Hats Off To The Buskers". Featuring guest appearances from fellow Scot Paulo Nutini and a member of Babyshambles, it looks set to be the band's best work yet.

"5 Rebeccas" will be the first track taken from the album, and has already become a firm live favorite with the band's loyal following. Released on October 27th, the single will be accompanied by three new tracks as B-sides: "Dun Deal", "Mr Men Book" and "For You".

"5 Rebeccas" by The View will be released on October 27th. The new album will be released in January 2009.
