Metronomy have dropped their promised new track, ‘Walking In The Dark’.
Premiered on Matt Wilkinson’s Beats 1 show, it comes alongside a brand new video, which you can check out below.
Band leader Joe Mount explains: “The ‘Walking In The Dark’ video is the age old tale of the guru and the fisherman set against a green screen backdrop. Clara is someone I became aware of through a collaboration between ourselves and Central St Martins college in London a few years ago. Her style is completely unique and something I was desperate to make part of the video. The song is one of my favourites from the new record and gives a wonderful taste of how eclectic the album is.”
Interestingly, a press release reveals the song is based around a pre-set rhythm that was found on the keyboard used in the video to 2011’s ‘The Look’.
It’s the latest taster of the forthcoming ‘Metronomy Forever’. The band’s latest album will arrive on 13th September, and has already been previewed by ‘Lately’ and ‘Salted Caramel Ice Cream’.
