Black Country, New Road Share New Track ‘Bread Song’

    Black Country, New Road have shared ‘Bread Song’, the second single off their upcoming LP Ants From Up There. The track follows lead offering ‘Chaos Space Marine’. Check it out below.

    “We wanted to do the first chorus with no time signature,” vocalist and guitarist Isaac Wood said of the new track in a statement. “I went to see Steve Reich do Music for 18 Musicians and there’s a piece where a bar length is determined by the breadth of the clarinet player, they just play until they run out of breath. I wanted to try that with the whole band, where we don’t look at each other, we don’t make too many cues, we just try and play without time—but together.”

    Ants From Up There, the follow-up to this year’s For the first time, is out February 4 via Ninja Tune.
