Yard Act announce new album 'Where's My Utopia?'

Following on from the release of their highly-praised Mercury Prize-nominated debut LP 'The Overload' at the start of last year, Yard Act have now announced their plans for a new studio album, arriving early next year.

The new full-length 'Where's My Utopia?' is being previewed by the new lead single 'Dream Job', which comes accompanied by a brilliant new video, and is set to be released on the 1st March via Island Records.

Speaking about the new offering, the band's James Smith said, “'Dream Job' feels like an apt introduction to the themes explored on 'Where's My Utopia?' - though not all encompassing. In part I was scrutinising and mocking myself for being a moaning ungrateful little brat, whilst also trying to address how the music industry is this rather uncontrollable beast that hurtles forward unthinkingly and every single person involved in it plays their part. Myself included, obviously. As with pretty much everything else going through my head last year, trying to find the right time to articulate the complexity of emotions I was feeling and the severity to which I was feeling them couldn't be found - or accommodated, so instead I tried to capture it in a pop song that lasts less than three minutes once the fog had cleared a bit. It’s good and bad. I'm still glad that everything that happened to me happened.”
