Titled ‘Blue Weekend’, the group’s third album is set for release on 11th June via Dirty Hit, and to get us hyped for what’s to come they’re sharing first track ‘The Last Man On Earth’.
Speaking on the new single, Ellie Rowsell says, “It’s about the arrogance of humans. I’d just read Kurt Vonnegut’s Cat’s Cradle and I had written the line ‘Peculiar travel suggestions are dancing lessons from god’ in my notes. But then I thought: ‘Uh, your peculiar travel suggestion isn’t a dancing lesson from god, it’s just a travel suggestion! Why does everything need to mean something more?’”
