Real Estate's new album 'The Main Thing' is coming next month

Real Estate have announced their new album, 'The Main Thing'.

The record is due on 28th February via Domino, preceded by lead single 'Paper Cup (feat. Sylvan Esso)', and is billed as "the band’s most inspired and self-aware set of songs to date".

Martin Courtney says of the new single: “Paper Cup is a song about getting older and realizing that this thing that I fell into doing over ten years ago - being a musician, writing songs, being a guy in a band - this may end up being my life’s work. Watching the people around me change and evolve, take on new challenges, and feeling sort of stuck in a rut, in a way. Feeling uncertain of the validity of being an artist in an age of climate change and general political and social unrest around the world.

"It’s a song about questioning your chosen path in life and searching for meaning in what you do.

"Those questions don’t really get resolved in this song, but ironically, the process of making this record - really diving deep and trying to make it the best thing we’ve ever made - reaffirmed in me, and I think in all of us in this band, why we are doing this."
