!!! share new single 'Panama Canal'

With their highly-anticipated new album landing in a few weeks, !!! have now dropped the next cut to be lifted from their forthcoming full-length.

The new single 'Panama Canal' comes accompanied by a brilliant new video, directed by the band's Chris Egan, and follows on from the previously shared tracks 'Here's What I Need To Know' and 'Storm Around The World' in previewing their new LP 'Let It Be Blue', which is out on the 6th May via Warp.

Speaking about the new offering, they said, "We wanted 'Panama Canal' to be one of those songs that would send you right back to the dance floor if you heard it while taking a break from dancing and getting a drink at the bar. We're a dance band and feel like this song fits into that mission but in a way that’s new and slightly different for us. In many ways this encapsulated what we wanted to do with the whole Let It Be Blue album’s production. We wanted modern, minimal songs that mainly featured beats, sub bass and some vocal hooks. The lyrics were inspired by Prince songs like 'Housequake' or 'DMSR' where he’s heard giving the audience instructions as well as the great rap metaphor writers like Andre 3000 and Lil Wayne. It’s one we definitely hope to hear out of car windows in New York City this summer."
