Everything Everything recently announced their new album ‘Get To Heaven’. The Mercury-nominated group’s third album will be released on June 15.
Jonathan Higgs recently told fans they are “not going to know what the fuck to do” with their new album, warning that the album will be informed by world events in the past year. “I think you’d have to be blind and deaf to have lived through 2014 and not shed a tear,” he said. “If you put out a record this year and it’s all smiles, then I think you’re a liar, basically.”
Everything Everything worked with producer Stuart Price (Kylie Minogue, Pet Shop Boys) on the follow up to 2013’s ‘Arc’. Higgs stated: “People are not going to know what the fuck to do with [the record], and I don’t care cos I think it’s awesome.”
Late last year Everything Everything debuted new material live during a Manchester Central Library residency.
