Following up their much-loved collaborative EP 'Posse, Volume 1' earlier this year, Metronomy are back to announce the details behind their next studio album 'Small World', which is set to be released on the 18th February via Because Music.
The new full-length will become their seventh record to date, and is being previewed by the new lead single 'it's good to be back'.
Speaking about the new offering, Joe Mount said, “Part of me was thinking, ‘what is the lamest platitude people are going to be saying coming out of the past two years?’, but at the same time, I was thinking how it will be true and how it might feel doing things again.
"I’ve been remembering what it was like as a kid when I’d be sitting in the backseat of my parents’ car and they’d be playing their music and I’d think ‘this is awful’, but there’d be one or two songs I would like. I thought it would be fun to make that kind of album, and this is the song the kids might like. This is the ‘cool’ song".
Have a listen to 'it's good to be back' and see the album's full tracklisting below.
'Small World' Tracklist:
Life and Death
Things will be fine
It’s good to be back
Loneliness on the run
I lost my mind
Right on time
Hold me tonight
I have seen enough
