Ahead of its release tomorrow, Fontaines have shared a 20-second preview of ‘I Love You’ which sees frontman Grian Chatten walking through a candlelit church – you can check out the clip below.

Speaking to NME back in September, Fontaines bassist Conor Deegan III said that the band initially considered the sound of their new record to be “quite poppy”.

“We thought we’d got this sound that was finally the sound that we wanted to get across the songs, which we thought was quite poppy,” he said.

“We showed them to our manager, and he said, ‘Lads, this is the darkest shit you’ve ever written!’ And we were like, ‘What? What are you talking about? This bass melody is catchy, this vocal melody is catchy’. He was just like, ‘No, this is extremely dark’. So there you go!”
