Fontaines D.C. drop new single 'Favourite'

With their highly-anticipated new album 'ROMANCE' out on the 23rd August via XL Recordings, Fontaines D.C. have now dropped the next cut to be lifted from their forthcoming full-length.

The new single 'Favourite' comes accompanied by a stunning self-directed video, and follows on from the previously shared lead track 'Starburster' in previewing their new LP.

Speaking about the new visuals, the band's Conor Deegan said, “This video is a reminiscing of the past; of each other’s childhoods we didn’t know. To see people we know on an intimate level as adults in the tender ages of childhood, we explore where we came from, and who on some level, still are. I see a lot of familiar faces being pulled, and the antics these lads are undertaking in their videos are so disarming and vulnerable to see. I am at times reminded of boyish mannerisms that they’ve grown out of in the time I’ve known them - and some that they haven’t. I feel their souls there.

"I would like this video to serve as a way of honouring our friendships, and moving from that, the relationships we hold dear. Our mothers, fathers, siblings, aunties and uncles, grandmothers and grandfathers. Those who we still have, and those we have sadly lost. We haven’t lost that connection to each other, and are not afraid to come of age again, holding on to romance in a sometimes trying world.”
