Doves Return with First New Song in 11 Years, ‘Carousel’

    Doves have returned with their first new song in 11 years titled ‘Carousel’. Listen to it below.

    The Manchester trio emerged from their near 10-year hiatus in December of 2018, when they announced a string of reunion shows.

    Speaking of the track, Andy Williams said in a statement: “It’s a reminiscence of the times that we’d go to places like North Wales on holiday as kids,” Andy Williams said in a statement. “Places where you had your first experience of sound systems and music being played really loud.”

    In an interview with NME, frontman Jimi Goodwin added: “‘Carousels’ is a really exciting track to come back with, especially now as it’s shot through with a lot of hope. It calls back to going to the fair when you’re a kid, dodging all the psychos and getting your waltzer money taken off you.”

    The song, which is built around a drum sample by the late Tony Allen, is taken from their long-awaited fifth studio album, which has yet to be officially announced. Their last full-length release was 2009’s Kingdom of Rust. Since then, Goodwin has released his debut solo album, 2014’s Odludek.
