MAGNET Television: Q&A With Jez Williams (Doves)

While a number of East Coast states are dealing with an infestation of lanternflies, the entire U.K. is trying to manage the out-of-control return of a larger flying species: Doves. The Manchester trio just issued The Universal Want, its first LP in 11 years, and not only did it immediately go to number one on the British album charts, it outsold the other four records in the top five combined. The Universal Want is also garnering universal acclaim from critics across the globe, and, as longtime Doves fans, we heartily concur that the album was worth the long wait. If you’re wanting some peace right now during these universally tough times, The Universal Want should be just what you need. Doves might not also bring you new beginnings, fidelity, love, luck and prosperity, but they will help you right now, when it’s so hard to get by.
