Cut Copy returned last month with new music and we questioned if there was more on the way. Now we have an answer.
Today, the Australian outfit delivered their new single "Cold Water," a twinkling new track which is a preview of the group's upcoming sixth studio album Freeze, Melt, which will arrive on Aug. 21. It's their first album in three years and it's available now for pre-order.
“After extensive touring on our last album, 'Cold Water' was one of the first new songs to appear," says frontman Dan Whitford. "I’d moved to Copenhagen and had been listening to a lot more ambient and instrumental electronic music and as a result 'Cold Water' felt quite different to songs we’d made in the past. It was less dance, but more atmospheric. Also the subject matter explores love in today’s context, where the climate and fate of the planet are becoming increasingly uncertain. Once we’d finished it, it felt like we'd placed a marker in the ground, guiding us in a new musical direction.”
The new song follows "Love Is All We Share," which the band released last month.
