Spring King are back on the bangers again with new track 'The Hum'

Spring King have shared another new track from their forthcoming second album.

Titled ‘The Hum’, it’s the third track we’ve heard from the band’s new full-length, following up on ‘Animal’ and ‘Us vs Them’. It got a first play earlier this evening on Annie Mac’s BBC Radio 1 show, and you can check it out below.

Speaking about ‘The Hum’, the band’s James Green explains: "'The Hum’ is a song about returning to old haunts and old memories, and attempting to relive those visceral experiences and emotions, whilst realising that you've allowed yourself to slip into a life that wasn't necessarily what you'd planned. It also came to encompass all the broader themes that the album touches on - self-reflection, overcoming adversity and negativity, and a constant striving for something better.”

"'The Hum’ is a song about returning to old haunts and old memories."
James Green, Spring King

The album, ‘A Better Life’, is now due on 31st August, arriving just after the four piece’s sets at Reading & Leeds festivals. They’ll then head off on the road this September, with a run including a headline date at London’s O2 Kentish Town Forum.
