METZ have teamed up with IDLES frontman Joe Talbot for a new single called ‘Come on Down’. They’ve also released ‘Heaven’s Gate’, a song previously only available only in the video game Cyberpunk 2077. Take a listen below.
“‘Come On Down’ was originally recorded during the Atlas Vending sessions but never fully finished,” METZ’s Alex Edkins said of the collaboration in a statement. “During the pandemic I really gravitated towards the idea of collaboration as a way to fill the void left by the loss of live music. I reached out to friends from far and wide in order to get that feeling of community that gigs provide. Joe Talbot (IDLES) is a longtime friend who METZ has shared the stage with many, many times, and this song was a very natural and fun way to catch up with him and do something positive with our time off the road.”
Joe Talbot added: “METZ have been a band we’ve looked up to since they came into our lives and made things better. I will never forget the first time I saw them or any of the other times. Allowing me to sing with them is a gift and I hope you like it. I love it and I love them. Long live METZ.”
