Black Country, New Road unveil new single ‘Bread Song’

With their highly-anticipated new album due out early next year, Black Country, New Road have now unveiled the next cut to be lifted from their forthcoming full-length.

The new single ‘Bread Song’ follows on from the previously shared lead track ‘Chaos Space Marine’ in previewing their sophomore LP ‘Ants From Up There’, which is out on the 4th February via Ninja Tune.

Speaking about the new offering, frontman Isaac Wood said, "We wanted to do the first chorus with no time signature. I went to see Steve Reich do Music for 18 Musicians and there's a piece where a bar length is determined by the breadth of the clarinet player, they just play until they run out of breath. I wanted to try that with the whole band, where we don't look at each other, we don't make too many cues, we just try and play without time - but together."
