Recorded at the renowned Toe Rag Studios, East London, Can't Touch Us Now is the newest album from legendary British band Madness, produced by Clive Langer and Liam Watson. Langer is the band's long-term producer and the man who has helped mold some of their biggest moments. Watson is owner of Toe Rag and a Grammy-winner for his work on The White Stripes' Elephant. The album was mixed by Brit Award winner Charlie Andrew (Alt-J).
Recording the whole album in under three weeks, tracks such as "Mr Apples," "Mumbo Jumbo," the Amy Winehouse referencing "Blackbird" and the title track "Can't Touch Us Now" capture the band's inimitable combination of pop, reggae and soul influences. As on many of Madness greatest moments, the lyrics are gloriously observational and humorous, beautifully framing life in London.
Can't Touch Us Now is the follow up to 2012's UK Top 10 album Oui Oui Si Si Ja Ja Da Da which was certified gold in the UK. Madness are one of the top 20 selling UK groups of all-time, with seven top ten albums, 22 top 20 hits and over six million album sales to their name. Can't Touch Us Now is the latest step in an incredible few years for the revitalized nutty boys.
