Metric have announced a ‘part two’ for their latest album.

‘Formentera II’ follows on from 2022 album ‘Formentera’, and is set for release on 13th October via Metric Music International/Thirty Tigers. They’ve also shared the first single from the project, ‘Just The Once’.

“The only way I can describe “Just The Once” is to call it regret disco,” says lead singer Emily Haines. “It’s a song for when you need to dance yourself clean. Beneath the sparkling surface, there’s a lyrical exploration of a simple word with many meanings. Once is a word that plays a game of opposites. Once can mean once-upon-a-time and refer to a moment in the past, or it can mean someday, once something happens. And as for doing something only once versus doing something once in a while, well, I think we all know how vast the difference is between the two.”

Check out the single below; the album’s full tracklisting reads:

Detour Up
Just The Once
Stone Window
Days Of Oblivion
Who Would You Be For Me
Nothing Is Perfect
Go Ahead And Cry
