Metronomy have dropped a new song, ‘Lately’.
Taken from their sixth album due in autumn, the track arrives with a video that sees frontman Joseph Mount making his directorial debut.
“This music video is a pop promo in the grand tradition of pop promos,” he says, “end of school on a Friday afternoon, mysterious little people that live in a cassette tape, concerned parents and special FX. The song and video are both about growing up.
“I’ve absolutely loved taking the opportunity to direct our own music videos. I have quite strong opinions on what music videos are for in 2019 and how they should be presented and this has been a chance for me to put my money where my mouth is!
“The most impressive thing I’ve realised is how much of a group effort creating a music video is. I’ve always known it, but this time I’ve obviously worked much closer with the various characters, involved in every department. So, thank you to them.”
