Glass Animals have released ‘It’s All So Incredibly Loud’, the brand new single to be taken from the band’s forthcoming new album Dreamland.
The album, which is due to be released Friday August 7, was delayed by the band out of respect for the Black Lives Matter movement. “The deaths of Breonna Taylor, George Floyd and Ahmaud Arbery horrified us to our core… and the despicable responses to police brutality and the hideous behaviour of extremists that followed were completely heartbreaking,” the band previously explained in a statement.
Not wanting their music to arrive as an interruption to the current conversation around the Black Lives Matter, the band added:
“All eyes and minds needed to be focused on civil rights and understanding how to defeat prejudice, and we made the decision to pause our album release plan indefinitely.”
The group also added that the “fight for civil rights is so much bigger and more important than any single piece of music” and, when referencing the music, insisted that they will “never take [their] eyes off of that ultimate goal”.
Discussing their new track: “The entire song is about three seconds of time,” frontman Dave Bayley said of the new song. “The time between you saying something devastating and then seeing the reaction. It’s deafening.”
