Glass Animals have marked their return with the typically upbeat new track ‘Your Love (Déjà Vu)’.
The new song, out now through Wolf Tone and Polydor, is the first look at Glass Animals’ follow-up to their 2016 Mercury Prize-nominated album How To Be A Human Being.
“I think we’ve all found ourselves in fucked up relationships that make us feel sad and helpless,” the band said while discussing the new martial. “Not necessarily something romantic—maybe it’s with a family member or a friend. A relationship that we know on some level is going to keep breaking our hearts. We let that person back into their lives over and over again, even though it always ends the same.”
Lead vocalist and guitarist Dave Bayley continued: “Maybe you don’t confront it because you hope it’ll change with time. Or because it’s easier to let it slide and never set boundaries. maybe you think you deserve that unhappiness. Or maybe you find some strange comfort in the chaos.
He added: “This song is about that…about being addicted to chaos. About doing or allowing something self-destructive because on some level you get off on the sadness that comes of it. It’s about wanting to float around and exist inside of that feeling because it has always been familiar to you. It’s something that a lot of people know from growing up in a tense household…so it can feel right to create that dynamic, even if you don’t realise you’re doing it.”
