Metronomy have announced their new album, ‘Summer 08’, and shared its first single, ‘Old Skool’.
Frontman Joe Mount appeared on Annie Mac’s BBC Radio 1 show earlier this evening to premiere the track. ‘Summer 08’ is out July 1.
Watch the video for the song below.
Speaking to Mac, Mount said that forthcoming album ”the most fun thing I’ve done in a long time”. In an interview with Q Magazine last month, he explained that the single was “about not recognising anyone at a party”.
Mount also revealed that Metronony’s fifth album will be a sequel of sorts to the band’s 2008 effort ‘Nights Out’.
“I just wanted to make an uptempo record,” he told Q. “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.”
Mix Master Mike, the legendary DJ who worked on several of the Beastie Boys’ biggest hits, contributes a scratch break to ‘Old Skool’.
The band’s most recent record, ‘Love Letters’, was released in 2014.
