Django Django return with new single ‘First Light’ – listen

Band return with first new music since 2012 debut

Django Django have revealed the full length version of their comeback single ‘First Light’.

The song is available on limited white label 12-inch and to download now. It will be followed by two intimate shows in February, the first at Leeds’ Wardrobe on February 14 and the second at Edinburgh’s Liquid Room on February 15.

Speaking recently to NME, the band revealed that they’ll be premiering unreleased material during the performances, including further tracks from their as yet untitled second album, which is due at some point this spring and will follow their self-titled 2012 debut LP.

“I think we’ll aim to play three new songs – the first single and a couple of other songs,” drummer Dave Maclean said. He added that the new record, which was recorded in London and Banbury, will be slicker than the band’s debut. “There’s more live stuff on this album – it’s not a bedroom record,” he said.

Django Django’s last live performance took place at the Hogmanay party in Edinburgh’s Princes Street on New Year’s Eve 2013. The Scottish band released their self-titled debut album in January 2012.
