Everything Everything prepare new single ‘Distant Past’

First song from band's third album will be revealed next week

Everything Everything have teased fans with new single ‘Distant Past’, which is set to be revealed next week.

The single is the first to be revealed from the band’s forthcoming third album and the group posted the following quizzical picture online overnight.

Jonathan Higgs of Everything Everything recently told fans they are “not going to know what the fuck to do” with their new album, warning that the album will be informed by world events in the past year.

The band, who will release their third album this spring, spoke to NME with Higgs calling out any artists who have not been affected by global events in the last year. “I think you’d have to be blind and deaf to have lived through 2014 and not shed a tear,” he said. “If you put out a record this year and it’s all smiles, then I think you’re a liar, basically.”

Eveyrthing Everything are also working with producer Stuart Price (Kylie Minogue, Pet Shop Boys) on the follow up to 2013’s ‘Arc’. Higgs stated: “People are not going to know what the fuck to do with [the record], and I don’t care cos I think it’s awesome.”

Late last year Everything Everything debuted new material live during a Manchester Central Library residency.
