The Wombats have dropped their new single, ‘Everything I Love Is Going To Die’.
It’s a track from their upcoming fifth studio album ‘Fix Yourself, Not The World’, which is set for release on 7th January via AWAL and sees them tour the UK next spring with Sports Team and The Night Cafe.
Frontman Matthew “Murph” Murphy says: “The song is about the impermanence of life, and with that in mind, the beauty of each passing second. Key line for me is ‘Icarus Was My Best Friend, So I’m Gonna Make Him Proud In The End’, which I guess is a playful take on living life to its fullest even though the consequences of that might be dire. Certainly not a call to Nihilism however, but perhaps a call to being present and the joy that can be found in appreciating each moment we find ourselves in.”
