Bloc Party have shared a new single, ‘Sex Magik’, lifted from their upcoming album Alpha Games. Check it out below.
“‘Sex Magik’ is probably my favorite song on the record,” the band’s Kele Okereke said in a statement. “It’s about a memory that I’d completely forgotten that resurfaced a few years ago about a summer fling that I had. I was a teenager at the time and during that summer I felt like the veil had been lifted from my eyes. I saw the world in a completely different way. It was a short-lived affair but the effects of that summer have stayed with me for a lifetime.”
Alpha Games, the band’s first new LP since 2016’s Hymns, is due out April 29 via Infectious/BMG. ‘Sex Magik’ follows the previously released tracks ‘The Girls Are Fighting’ and ‘Traps’.
