Glass Animals announce new album 'Dreamland'

Having spent the last few weeks delighting fans with a string of lo-fi cover songs during the lockdown, Glass Animals have now announced their plans for a new studio album, arriving later this summer.

The new full-length 'Dreamland' will include the previously shared singles 'Tokyo Drifting' ft Denzel Curry and 'Your Love (Déjà Vu)', as well as the newly unveiled title-track, and is expected to be released on the 10th July via Polydor.

Speaking about their new album, frontman Dave Bayley said, “The idea for this album came at a time of confusion and uncertainty. My best friend was in the hospital. I didn’t know if he’d make it. The future was damn scary and completely unknown. During those weeks in the hospital, it was so difficult to look forwards that I found myself looking backwards. Digging around in my mind, pulling up old memories, finding comfort in them even if they were uncomfortable in themselves.

"Speaking to friends and family, I’ve realised that a lot of people are experiencing a similar sort of confusion now. Everything that we thought we could see clearly in front of us has been thrown into the air, and all the while, we can’t be out finding our footing. We can’t be out creating new memories, so…we’re diving back head-first into the old ones. I hear that in conversations. I see it in what people are watching on TV. In what we’re listening to. In what we’re eating. In dreams."
