Arab Strap Release New Song ‘Strawberry Moon’

    Arab Strap have released ‘Strawberry Moon’, the latest preview of their upcoming LP, which is titled I’m totally fine with it 👍 don’t give a fuck anymore 👍. It follows previous entries ‘Bliss’ and ‘Allatonceness’. The accompanying visual, created with David Arthur, marks the first time the duo of Aidan Moffat and Malcolm Middleton have appeared in a video together in almost 25 years. “Aye, it’s been a while,” Moffatt commented, “So we thought we should go all out – costumes, make-up, special effects, acting, mobility scooter and all.” Watch and listen below.

    “Lyrically, it’s maybe the most personal song on the album,” Moffat added of the track. “About a period when I wasn’t doing very well, both mentally and physically. I was walking with a cane and in pain most of the time, and drowning my sorrows too, trapped at home and watching the phases of the moon through a window. The moon always seems to pop up in my lyrics, and the song’s a sort of secular hymn in praise of her constant change. She’s always a comfort, always hopeful, and always makes me smile.”

    I’m totally fine with it 👍 don’t give a fuck anymore is due for release on May 10.
