Glass Animals have shared their new single ‘Heat Waves’, and put their album back.
The band’s first record following drummer Joe Seaward’s awful bike accident in 2018, ‘Dreamland’ was due for release on 10th July via Polydor, but now it’ll arrive on 7th August instead.
On the new video, Dave Bayley says: “’The ‘Heat Waves’ video is a love letter to live music and the culture and togetherness surrounding it. It was filmed at the peak of the lockdown in my neighbourhood in East London by the lovely people who live around me, just using their phones. These are people who are usually out at shows, in galleries, going to cinemas, etc.
“These venues are left empty now, and many of them will not survive. The song is about loss and longing, and ultimately realizing you are unable to save something…and this video is about that but for art, being together and human contact. Huge love and thank you’s to everyone who got involved and helped out.
“When everyone was leaning out of their windows filming, I felt that same sense of togetherness and spine-tingling energy that happened at live shows. It made the coldness of performing to an empty room with the band stuck on screens feel even more heart-breaking.”
