In the run-up to the release of ‘Duck’, Kaiser Chiefs have also shared the record’s latest single ‘People Know How To Love One Another’, which you can hear below.
In a short note to fans, Kaiser Chiefs said of the track: “To us, it feels like one of the key songs on ‘Duck’ and therefore a good teaser for the album.”
Speaking to NME last month about the new album, frontman Ricky Wilson said that it was sounding “undeniably Kaiser Chiefs”.
“I went and listened to the first few [Kaiser Chiefs albums] again,” Wilson said. “I listened to a lot of the stuff we were listening to when we made those albums, like some old Motown and stuff. The truth of the matter is that it’s just five of us in a room and we make the music that we make.”
