The Drums have announced a new album, ‘Jonny’.
The act’s sixth full-length, it’s set for release on 13th October via ANTI- Records, preceded by new single ‘Better’.
“When I finished ‘Jonny’, I listened to it, and I heard my soul reflected back at me,” says founding member Jonny Pierce. “It is devastating and triumphant, it is lost and found, it is confused and certain, it is wise and foolish. It is male and female, it is hard and gentle.
“To encapsulate ones’ whole self in an album, to honor each and every part of you – even the parts that feel at odds with each other, is to make something deeply human, and because my religion is humanism, the album becomes a sacred place for me to worship. Each feeling a different pew, each song a hymn to the human heart.”
Check out the new single below.
The album’s full tracklisting reads:
I Want It All
I’m Still Scared
Protect Him Always
Teach My Body
I Used to Want To Die
