Glass Animals Release New Single ‘Heat Waves’

Glass Animals have released a new single titled ‘Heat Waves’, taken from their upcoming studio album, Dreamland. The single comes with an accompanying video directed by Colin Read, which sees frontman Dave Bayley strolling around the streets of London during lockdown on his way to an empty venue. Check it out below.

In a press release, Bayley called the song “a love letter to live music and the culture and togetherness surrounding it.” Speaking of the video, he explained: “It was filmed at the peak of the lockdown in my neighbourhood in East London by the lovely people who live around me, just using their phones.”

He added: “These are people who are usually out at shows, in galleries, going to cinemas etc. These venues are left empty now, and many of them will not survive. The song is about loss and longing, and ultimately realising you are unable to save something… and this video is about that but for art, being together, and human contact.”

The UK indie pop group’s forthcoming album was originally slated for release on July 10th, but was recently postponed to August 10th “in order to respect and support the ongoing Black Lives Matter movement,” according to a statement. The band previously previewed the album with the Denzel Curry-featuring ‘Tokyo Drifting’ and the title track.
