Fucked Up have dropped a new single ‘I Think I Might Be Weird’, ahead of their forthcoming album ‘One Day’, set to be released on 27th January via Merge Records.
Frontman Damian Abraham spoke of the process of creating the album: “It almost felt like it might be the last time I’d ever get to record vocals for anything,” he explained. “What do I want to say to friends who aren’t here anymore? What do I want to say to myself? There was a lot of inner reflection going on, and after retreating into the fantasy world with Year of the Horse, this record is like we’re returning to real life.”
Accompanying the single is a music video directed by Maxwell McCabe-Loko and co-written with guitarist Mike Haliechuk, described as “an ode to OCD”.
