Yard Act have dropped another taster of their much-anticipated debut album ‘The Overload’.
With the band’s first full-length set to arrive this Friday, 21st January, they’ve given an airing to ‘Pour Another’ as Hottest Record in the World on BBC Radio 1’s Future Sounds with Clara Amfo.
That’s not the only new music they’re offering up, either, with a cover of their biggest fan Elton John’s legendary anthem ‘Tiny Dancer’ arriving as part of an Apple Music Home Session.
Speaking about ‘Pour Another’, frontman James Smith explains: “‘Pour Another’ zooms in on the post-party conversations many hedonists will be all too familiar with. It leaves the impending doom of daily life in a world on fire at the door, at that point in the night when you don’t want to let go of the moment you’re in, when everything is perfect and everyone is your new best friend. Those moments fade, because nothing stays as it was. You’re woken with a bang and you have to face the truth.”
Of the ‘Tiny Dancer’ cover, he adds: “We did ‘Tiny Dancer’ ‘cause our new best pal Elton has been so kind about us in the press recently. A song like Tiny Dancer seems so far removed from what people assume Yard Act is, we thought it would be a really interesting way of showing not only our own versatility, but also the versatility of a song as good as ‘Tiny Dancer’.”
