Two Door Cinema Club have posted another track from their forthcoming new album ‘Gameshow’ online.
The song – ‘Bad Decisions’ – is the second to be lifted from the record which is due out on October 14 via Parlophone.
Singer Alex Trimble recently said of the new album’s sound: “We’re not embracing the pop that’s going on now in a melodic or structural sense. The two biggest influences for me were Prince and Bowie – both total pioneers who straddled that line between out-there pop and avant garde craziness”.
The new track is very much in line with Trimble’s description with his vocals more high pitched like Prince, than any of their previous songs. You can listen to the track below.
Trimble explained his inspiration behind the single: “I discovered this term weltschmertz, the German word for being at odds with the world around you. The fact that it was a fully coined term made me feel it was okay to not exist on the same level as everyone else, it was okay to be comfortable doing your own thing.”
He added: “Is your phone the last thing you look at before you go to sleep? Is it the first thing you reach for when you wake up? Tonight, turn it off and let your imagination send you to sleep. In the morning, get up, go outside and breathe in the new day’s air. Trust us – you’ll feel better.”
‘Gameshow’ follows on from ‘Beacon’ in 2012 and their 2010 debut ‘Tourist History’. They also released their ‘Changing Of The Seasons’ EP in 2013.
The new LP was recorded in Los Angeles with Jacknife Lee (U2, REM, Bloc Party), who also produced their last album.
Two Door Cinema Club are due to headline the Reading & Leeds Festivals this weekend.
