Young Fathers have shared a teaser of new music and announced they are set to return tomorrow (July 12).
Now, they’ve revealed plans to return on Tuesday and shared a snippet of piano-led new music.
It’s not clear whether a new album will be announced tomorrow, but you can hear the teaser for now below.
Reviewing 2018’s ‘Cocoa Sugar’, the band’s third album, NME wrote: “Young Fathers shouldn’t need to simmer down or spoon-feed what they do to gain popularity or make a better living. They’ve made it this far by being unlike any other band in the country, equally motivated by writing great pop songs and sounding completely alien.
“‘Cocoa Sugar’ isn’t a filtered version of what came before. Instead, it cements their status as riled-up oddballs determined to reinvent the wheel.”
Reflecting on the success of the album in a 2019 interview with NME, the band’s Alloysious Massaquoi said: “We don’t know if it has connected, but we know that it’s a great album. Every time we go into the studio we do something better than what we’ve done before.”
He continued: “I think it’s less about the message and more about what we wanted to do. We wanted to make a record that had a lot more space, that was more direct, and this record allows people to come in. We open up a little bit more, and when you do that, a lot of people want to gravitate towards that.”
