HAPPENINGS
by KASABIAN


Happenings, released 5 July 2024, is Kasabian's eighth studio album. Co-produced by Serge and Mark Ralph (Zara Larsson, Clean Bandit, Rudimental), it marks the follow-up to the band's 2022 Number 1 album The Alchemist’s Euphoria.

Made up of ten sharp, visceral doses of fresh heavy hitters, Happenings draws inspiration from the anything-goes art performance of the late-1950s.

Veering from dance floor to mosh pit, during the production of the album tracks over three minutes were banned, with the 10-song tracklist clocking in at 28 minutes and 51 seconds - a minute shorter than The Ramones' debut. Happenings is an album that never overstays its welcome, and leaves listeners craving more.

More than a year ahead of the album's release (16 June 2023) Kasabian put out lead single Algorithms as a commentary on the emergence of artificial intelligence, a song they performed on BBC's The One Show. This was followed by second single, the dancefloor-friendly Call in February of the following year, and by springtime they released disco-tinged third single Coming Back To Me Good.

In the week before the release of Happenings, Kasabian ringed in a euphoric secret set at Glastonbury on the Woodsies Stage as well as announcing an arena tour for November 2024 with special guests The Streets.

On 12 July 2024 Happenings landed straight in at the top of the Official Albums Chart, giving Kasabian their seventh UK Number 1 album of their career. Speaking exclusively to Official Charts, Sergio Pizzorno said: “What’s up, pop pickers? That’s seven Official Number 1 albums on the spin. Thank you to our fans, the greatest in the world. We’re nothing without you, we absolutely adore you! This is wonderful, come on!”
