New album ‘Summer 08’ is out on July 1
Metronomy have shared a video for their track ‘Night Owl’.
The song is lifted from upcoming album ‘Summer 08’, out on July 1. It follows previously revealed cuts ‘Back Together’, ‘Old Skool’ and ‘Hang Me Out To Dry’.
The clip was filmed in the Palm Desert by Mr Oizo and sees Mount and girlfriend (played by cult film director Zoe Cassavetes) on a road trip, with a murderer on the hunt for the singer.
Frontman Joseph Mount previously explained that Metronony’s forthcoming album will be a sequel of sorts to the band’s 2008 effort ‘Nights Out’, which he once described as “a half-arsed concept album about going out and having a crap time”.
“I just wanted to make an uptempo record,” he told Q Magazine in April. “I wanted to try and do another record that captures that fading memory of being a bit younger and going to clubs, but with the confidence I didn’t have then.”
Speaking on Annie Mac’s BBC Radio 1 show in May, Mount said that the album is ”the most fun thing I’ve done in a long time”.
The band’s last record, ‘Love Letters’, was released in 2014.
