The Big Moon share details of new album ‘Walking Like We Do’ and release single ‘Your Light’

LP 2 is coming

The Big Moon have shared details of their upcoming second album ‘Walking Like We Do’ along with a new song called ‘Your Light’. Check out the official video below.

The London four-piece made their return last month with comeback single ‘It’s Easy Then‘, the first slice of material since their Mercury-nominated debut ‘Love In The Fourth Dimension’.

The group have now confirmed that its follow-up will arrive on January 10, 2020 via Fiction Records. Offering fans another taste of what’s to come, The Big Moon premiered ‘Your Light’ on BBC Radio 1 this evening (September 10) and have also released its official video, which sees The Big Moon cycling around the Essex countryside.

“I was thinking about how hard it is to tell if things are worse now or if they have always been this way and I just grew up and started paying attention,” lead singer Juliette Jackson explains of the inspiration behind the track.

“To me, it feels like we are at this tipping point that is unprecedented, but then it occurred to me that every generation before us probably had a moment when they thought they were going to be the last generation on earth.”

Jackson goes on to say that ‘Your Light’ reflects the feelings of “freeing yourself from all of it, just for a moment” and escaping difficult times with the help of someone or something special. 

“It’s a thanks to the one person or thing in your life that knows how to come in and open your curtains and light up the darkness and restore your strength,” she explains. “So that when you clatter back down into the real world you have the strength to fight your battles, whatever they are.”

Upon the release of ‘It’s Easy Then’, The Big Moon spoke to NME about the track, new album and how Phoebe Waller-Bridge inspired their new record.

“Look at Fleabag. It’s a new voice and way of describing women, and I’ve just found it really inspiring,” Jackson told NME. “As a woman, it just really spoke to me – being able to be a real human and not aspects of yourself to try and be cool.”
