Spring King have shared their brand new track ‘The Hum’, a massive offering taken from their forthcoming new album.
Premiered on Annie Mac’s Radio 1 show last night (Tuesday 17th July), the track follows on from recently-released tracks ‘Animal’ and ‘Us Vs Them’ and continues to show off the more beefed-up, supercharged sound of ‘A Better Life’.
Speaking of the track itself, the band’s James Green has said: “’The Hum’ is a song about returning to old haunts and old memories, and attempting to relive those visceral experiences and emotions, whilst realising that you’ve allowed yourself to slip into a life that wasn’t necessarily what you’d planned. It also came to encompass all the broader themes that the album touches on - self-reflection, overcoming adversity and negativity, and a constant striving for something better.”
Spring King’s new album ‘A Better Life’ is due for release on 31st August via Island Records. Listen to ‘The Hum’, and check out their upcoming live shows, below.
