Arriving just ahead of their performance on The Other Stage at Glastonbury Festival this weekend and hot on the heels of announcing UK arena tour dates with Paul Heaton for the end of this year – THE ZUTONS now share new single ‘Pauline’.

Earlier this year THE ZUTONS released their first album together in more than 16 years. Produced by Nile Rodgers alongside the band’s original producer Ian Broudie, The Big Decider arrived on April 26th to widespread acclaim and landed in the UK albums chart Top 10. The band have since been touring the album up and down the country – and recently announced a first live return to North America since 2006 and shared news they will be special guests to Paul Heaton on his upcoming 2024 UK arena tour in Nov/Dec.

Now they announce new single ‘Pauline’ with a brand new radio edit available to download here for airplay.

Talking about the new single, lead singer and guitarist Dave McCabe says: “Pauline is a song about all the women who have ever helped me in my life and the times you bump into them after years of not seeing them. You see how each other have grown but they still very much have the same spark about them. Aunties, cousins, mums, nans and most of all my wife. It’s my ode to them all. Because without these women I wouldn’t be the man I am today.”
