Death From Above 1979 have unveiled a brand new song, ‘Trainwreck 1979’.

The duo debuted the track on Zane Lowe’s BBC Radio 1 show earlier this evening (July 7), and you can listen to the track here.

The band will release their first album since their 2004 debut ‘You’re A Woman, I’m A Machine’ in September having decided to write and record new material following their reunion in 2011.


‘The Physical World’ will be released on September 9 and features tracks including ‘Right On, Frankenstein!’, ‘Cheap Talk’ and ‘Virgins’. Speaking to NME in an exclusive interview frontman Jesse F Keeler said: “It quickly became apparent that if we tried to do this again, we could make a record that would satisfy us more.”

“The goodwill of reuniting doesn’t sustain you. People wanted more music and we wanted to provide it for them,” added drummer Sebastien Grainger. “It was that same, ‘Oh yeah, he writes these great riffs that I can write songs over’ feeling.”

The album has been produced by Noel Gallagher/Oasis producer Dave Sardy and the band describe one track on the album, ‘White Is Red’, as being like “Springsteen meets Sonic Youth”.
