Glass Animals return with new single 'I Don’t Wanna Talk (I Just Wanna Dance)'

Following up the release of their much-loved third studio album 'Dreamland' last year, Glass Animals have now returned to share a brand new single.

The new track 'I Don't Wanna Talk (I Just Wanna Dance)' marks their first piece of original material so far this year, and comes accompanied by a stunning new video, directed by Drew Kirsch.

Speaking about the new offering, the band's songwriter and producer Dave Bayley said, “Talking is great, don't get me wrong. But this pandemic has made so many of us look inwards in a way we maybe haven’t before. The uncertainty in the world and the inability to go out and create new memories makes you dig deep into the past. It really fed people's deepest insecurities and rattled our foundations in so many ways. Relationships changed, friendships altered, and self-confidence was warped. I spent a lot of time talking to my dog, but even more time talking to myself in my head, which was keeping me up all night, and my friends and family were doing the same.

"It felt like we were all put in a pressure cooker, but there was no way to let out the steam. That's what this track is about - that pressure cooker exposing and expanding so many cracks, but struggling to fill them in and decompress. I want people to switch their devices off, put this song on, close their eyes, and have that release for a moment.”
