The Wombats share frenetic new single ‘Ready For The High’

It's a "90’s inspired track" that frontman Murph "was excited to toss a load of trumpets into"

The Wombats have shared their latest single ‘Ready For The High’ ahead of the release of their forthcoming album ‘Fix Yourself, Not The World’.

The track, which you can listen to below, is the third to be lifted from the forthcoming record after recent singles ‘If You Ever Leave, I’m Coming With You‘ and ‘Method To The Madness‘.

“’Ready For The High’ is a 90’s inspired track that I was excited to toss a load of trumpets into,” said frontman Matthew ‘Murph’ Murphy. “The song is about being engulfed in a bad place, but rather than accepting this as immutable, acknowledging that it is only temporary and that better times are closer than they (currently) appear.”

Speaking recently to NME about their forthcoming album, Murph said: “With our fourth album, I put a lot of pressure on it and I knew I had to do something really great, and so for me this album was just to focus on the energy that we were given from the fourth album and just shift it across a few more years. And if it’s better than that, then so be it – and it might just be, actually.”
