Fucked Up have shared ‘Cicada’, the final single to be released from their new album One Day. The track, which features guitarist Mike Haliechuk on lead vocals, arrives with an accompanying video directed by Colin Medley. Check it out below.
“‘Cicada’ is about what life is like after you lose people, and our responsibility to carry them forward into the future, using the things they taught us as a light,” Haliechuk said in a statement. “I like to imagine the sound of cicadas as a metaphor for our strange life in the subculture—we all just live these weird little hidden lives under the dirt, and then once in a generation, one of us gets to bust out of the dirt and intone their song so loud that it can be heard all over.”
One Day is out this Friday, January 27. It includes the previously released singles ‘I Think I Might Be Weird’, ‘Found’, and the title track.
