Metronomy have announced plans for their new album.
Titled 'Metronomy Forever', their sixth full-length will arrive on 13th September, with the news coming alongside a brand new track and a bunch of tour dates.
Coming ahead of an intimate show at Hackney's Studio 9294 later this evening (19th June 2019), fresh cut 'Salted Caramel Ice Cream' also has an accompanying video directed by frontman Joe Mount, which you can check out below.
Speaking about the video, he explains: “Years ago a friend of mine gave me a VHS tape of the MTV show ‘120 Minutes’. It’s something I’d get him to do every so often as I was a bit obsessed with music TV at the time. On one particular tape was the video for ‘Sonne’ by Rammstein, I’d never seen them before and it blew my mind. This video is a sort of homage to that, but with an added story about the gentrification of ice cream parlours.”
“What happens is when you’re making music and you enter a world where you have achieved some sort of celebrity no matter how large or small you start to think about yourself in terms of legacy and what you’re going to leave behind,” continues Mount, talking about 'Metronomy Forever'. “And then you realise that’s limited to the interest people have in you. In the end I feel completely comfortable with it. The less importance you place in any art the more interesting it can become in a way… I’m making music, I’m going to do some concerts, I need to feed my children”.
