Tracey Thorn’s first album of original material in seven years, Record, sees her surrounding a 9-minute dub/disco epic centrepiece with more concise and vigorous electro-pop. The lyrics ar of a personal and political subject matter, focusing on themes close to her heart such as feminism. There are guest performances from Jenny Lee Lindberg and Stella Mozgawa of Warpaint and Corinne Bailey Rae.

9/10 Fred Customer review, 2nd April 2018
Everything But the Girl's inimitable voice is back again with a sumptuous record. Nine feminist bangers as Thorn herself says, wrapped in an electro/post-punk groove. A decade in it's solo career now, Thorn has created and perfected a niche pretty much of her own: a kind of singer-songwriter disco that still surprises and sounds fresh. Record is very much of it's time, and the sharply written lyrics do not disappoint! Blasting lyrics like ''You are the man, but I'm not your baby'' in the epic 8 minutes Sister and ''It's send or delete now, on all that I've said
I'm closing your page now, are you looking at mine'' in Face, Thorn really is at the top of her game. A wise record that matters, a novelty it seems in 2018! Listen to this!
