The Clientele – “Claire’s Not Real”


In April, the Clientele announced a new album, I Am Not There Anymore, which is out at the end of next month. We’ve already heard “Blue Over Blue” and “Dying In May,” and today the UK band’s back with “Claire’s Not Real.” Singer/guitarist Alasdair MacLean describes of the latest single: “I was in Cercedilla in Spain in summer 2020. There was suddenly a rain of ash and an orange glow on the horizon, and I read on my phone that nearby Ávila was burning with forest fires. This moment found its way into several songs on the album.”
