This is the second listening party the band have co-hosted from isolation with Tim Burgess, after hosting one for their 2016 debut album, ‘Hill’s End’, early last month.
Burgess has hosted several of these parties with other artists, including Joy Division’s Peter Hook, The Streets’ Mike Skinner and Foals.
“It’s an inclusive thing and it’s fun, which is something we need to have,” Burgess told NME previously.
“It’s at 10pm for a reason, as a distraction from the Ten O’Clock News – anyone can watch the news at any other time of the day, so it’s not a protest. It’s less than 45 minutes, everyone seems to be able to say what they wanna say, it’s a great way for fans to find out what goes on behind the making of an album.”
‘For Now’ was released in 2018 and featured singles like ‘Dawning’, ‘In The Air’ and ‘The End’.
DMA’S are on the cusp of releasing their highly anticipated third album, ‘The Glow’, due out July 10.
