Two Door Cinema Club have shared a new single, ‘Lucky’ – you can listen to it below.
The track is the latest preview of the Northern Irish trio’s fifth studio album ‘Keep On Smiling’, which is due to arrive on September 2 (physical versions will come out on November 4).
“‘Lucky’ is a reflection about how fast things change. Lamenting the loss of points and moments in culture,” the band explained of the shimmering, synth-heavy song in a statement.
“We live in such a disposable society, we just need to take the time to think and reflect about why things are there in the first place.”

An official video for ‘Lucky’ is set to premiere on YouTube at 7pm BST today (July 29) – you’ll be able to watch it here.

Earlier this month, the trio headlined Community Festival 2022 in Finsbury Park, London. Reviewing the set, NME wrote: “[…] Two Door Cinema Club are up for the challenge of closing out the day, and know what’s required.
“Like The Wombats before them, material from across their back catalogue is met with rampant excitement.”
