Glass Animals share new single 'A Tear In Space (Airlock)'

With their highly-anticipated new album landing next month, Glass Animals have now dropped the next cut to be lifted from their forthcoming full-length.

The new single 'A Tear In Space (Airlock)' comes accompanied by a stunning new video, directed by Taylor Fauntleroy and Drew Kirsch, and follows on from the previously shared lead track 'Creatures In Heaven' in previewing their fourth LP 'I Love You So F***ing Much', which is out on the 19th July.

Speaking about the new visuals, directors Fauntleroy and Kirsch said, "This concept really began with Dave’s idea to get himself in a wind tunnel and throw things at him, which sounded great until we realised we might kill him and/or get sued. That led to us to really work to visualise the emotional experience of A Tear in Space and find abstract techniques to tell this story which is about trying to get close to someone who’s pushing you away and tugging and pulling at you until you lose your identity entirely. We did also get to throw some things at Dave which was a highlight."

While the band's Dave Bayley added, "The roses, the dining table, the candles and the suit are all symbols of love and care. All juxtaposed by a big cold scientific machine made of blades that can only blow things away and destroy. The blades get faster as you get closer. It peels the layers off you until there are none left, and then it stretches you and pulls you apart until you’re obliterated. The irony I guess is that even if you do manage to push through the wind and make it to the core of the beast, it just chops you to bits anyway!"
