On March 10th Metronomy will release their superb new single, 'Love Letters', in tandem with their new album of the same name.
Generating genuine excitement already, the new single was Zane Lowe’s ‘Hottest record in the world’ last night and will be played on Fearne Cotton’s Radio 1 show this morning. Last night, Mount confirmed that the Oscar winning Director, Michel Gondry, will be producing the video for 'Love Letters'. Stream it here.
Metronomy’s previous single indicating their return, ‘I’m Aquarius’, received critical acclaim and was BBC 6Music’s most played track in December. The band were one of the first to be announced to play Reading & Leeds festival this year and are due to headline Field Day festival this June.
The band will play a special in-store show at Rough Trade East (east London) on March 9th to celebrate both new releases. Tickets are available from: http://www.roughtrade.com/events/2014/3/372.
