Stereophonics have released a second single from their forthcoming 12th studio album.

‘Do Ya Feel My Love?’ is the second cut that the Welsh stalwarts have shared from ‘Oochya!’, which is due out on March 4, 2022. It follows lead single ‘Hanging on Your Hinges’, which arrived back in September, and is a similarly freewheeling, uptempo effort.

The single arrives amidst a busy period for the Cardiff veterans that has seen them detail ‘Oochya!’ and an accompanying arena tour for next year, whilst also lining up a series of intimate shows to mark the 20th anniversary of their six-times platinum third album, ‘Just Enough Education to Perform’. 

Those gigs, which will take Stereophonics to lesser-visited towns including Llandudno and Dundee, begin later this month. The band will then play two massive hometown shows at the Principality Stadium in December, with Tom Jones and Catfish and the Bottlemen in support. 

‘Oochya!’ itself, meanwhile, was born out of a similar idea, with a planned compilation to mark 25 years since the group’s first single leading frontman Kelly Jones to unearth unreleased, fast-paced material that provided the basis and impetus for the new record.

Meanwhile, Jones recently opened up on his experiences of recording 2001’s ‘Just Enough Education To Perform’ in an extensive piece shared exclusively with Rolling Stone UK.

He recalled of the album’s success: “We were only three albums in, maybe we had arrived, maybe it was the peak, maybe we were flavour of the month, maybe it was an overnight success, well it was a long fucking night to get there and now twenty five years in and on our twelfth studio album and twelfth Arena tour, maybe it’s time to believe we do have enough education to perform and the people are there to see us, and relax for fuck’s sake and enjoy the ride.”
