Glass Animals have shared their first new track in ages, ‘Tokyo Drifting (Feat. Denzel Curry)'

Glass Animals have shared their first new track in ages, ‘Tokyo Drifting (Feat. Denzel Curry)'.

The song is part of the band’s Fresh Fruit series of collaborations, which will see them drop a number of new releases over the coming months.

Dave Bayley says: “The first thing Denzel said to me about the track was “this is fire.” Then he said, “Is this you flexin’?” and I said - “Yeh...it is...sort of. It’s an ironic internal flex - me as a narrator describing/taking the piss out of an extreme alter ego version of myself; a version of me that can do things that I’m uncomfortable doing. Wavey Davey is my fucked-up Sasha Fierce; he’s a geezer, a street fighter, he can dance, he parties hard, he’s spontaneous. He can take hits and be told he is shit and not care because he’s confident. He can fight everything the world throws at him.”

He adds: “I think this kind of character is someone we all create for ourselves now to some extent. We have these curated versions of ourselves on the internet - beautiful, edited, cool, distilled versions of us, all slightly super human. You can push and push and push yourself to hide and ignore your vulnerabilities like that...but it comes at a cost. It’s not real and it isn’t sustainable.”
