Some Cities is Doves' third album. It was released February 21, 2005, on Heavenly Records. Most of it was recorded in a farmhouse in Chesire, England, except for the final song, “Ambition,” which was recorded in a Benedictine monastery in Scotland.
Says the band about the album: “With that album we were also wanting to make a few social comments about the area we lived in. There’s a lot of subject matter on that album dealing with change. Buildings get ripped down and replaced by more generic ones. It kind of gave ourselves a bit of purpose to write about it. We also listened to a lot of Motown and Northern soul, and I think that came out in that album. It was a definite change. Our albums do tend to change character and personality with every release.”
