Listen to new single ‘Who Put You Up To This?’ now.

Four years on since the release of second album ‘Twentytwo In Blue’, Sunflower Bean have announced that their new album ‘Headful of Sugar’ will be arriving on 6th May via Lucky Number.

“We wanted to write about the lived experience of late capitalism, how it feels every day, the mundanity of not knowing where every construct is supposed to ultimately lead you,” Nick Kivlen says. “The message is in the title: this is about fast pleasures, the sugar of life, the joy that comes with letting go of everything you thought mattered.”

Sharing new track ‘Who Put You Up To This?’ alongside the news, the band add, “Are you satisfied? Who put you up to do things that you do? Was it your own choice? Questioning your life is the first step to taking the agency to change it. Sometimes you have to let go of who you have been so that you can become who you want to be.”

Check out the track below.
