With new single ‘Elevator Hum’ - the third to be lifted from upcoming LP ‘What Happened To The Beach?’, following ‘Sympathy’ and ‘Nothing Works’ - Declan McKenna has taken something of a left turn. With groove-laden layers and lush production, ‘Elevator Hum’ hints at the sonic range of his new album, which is due to hit shelves on 9th February 2024 (via Columbia Records).

Speaking about the new track, he has said: “’Elevator Hum’ was a tune that came in the latter stages of my first trip to LA working on the album with Luca [Buccellati, producer]. He threw the chords down and the riff fell into my hands. It’s a song that felt like it captured some nostalgic essence of friendship as we built a relationship through creating music together. The freedom and playfulness of the lyrics, and the gentle but fun glide of the track, take me back to being a kid in a way.”
