The track is set to appear on the band's forthcoming debut album
Black Futures and Bobby Gillespie have released their socially conscious collaborative track, ‘Me.TV’.
The song is set to feature on the upcoming debut album from the industrial noise band and features a spoken word contribution from the Primal Scream leader.
‘Me.TV’ sees the London-based group and Gillespie urging listeners to focus on helping others around them rather than putting themselves first. You can listen to it below now.
In a press release, Black Futures said: “Turn Down Your ME.TV & Turn Up For Your Community’ is one of our expedition club mottos. We are all part of this vast, awe-inspiring web of existence. A community of humans, flora, fauna and seemingly vast expanses of space and time. In these times of division, inequality and turmoil, we want to encourage our fellow privileged earthlings to beat the grip of narcissism and see themselves as a part of something vastly more complex and beautiful. As Brian Eno would call it, the ‘Wide Me’ and the ‘Long Now’.”
“This song is a blunt joyous call to arms. With our brother and friend Bobby Gillespie we bring you an anthem: an act of defiance. We are all a little afraid of the future… so let’s go there together, as friends. MAKE WEIRD & LIVE FREE!”
The band recently supported Frank Carter & The Rattlesnakes on tour. They will play a series of headline dates later this year, alongside appearances at festivals including Hit The North, Camden Rocks, and Download.
