Glass Animals unveil new single 'Heat Waves'

With their highly-anticipated new album now set to arrive in August, Glass Animals have kept their fans happy by unveiling the next cut to be lifted from their forthcoming full-length.

The new single 'Heat Waves' comes accompanied by a stunning new video, and follows on from the previously shared tracks 'Your Love (Déjà Vu)', 'Tokyo Drifting' and the record's title-track in previewing their third LP 'Dreamland', which has been pushed back to be released on the 7th August via Wolf Tone Records.

Speaking about the new video, frontman Dave Bayley said, “The ‘Heat Waves’ video is a love letter to live music and the culture and togetherness surrounding it. It was filmed at the peak of the lockdown in my neighbourhood in East London by the lovely people who live around me, just using their phones. These are people who are usually out at shows, in galleries, going to cinemas etc. These venues are left empty now, and many of them will not survive. The song is about loss and longing, and ultimately realising you are unable to save something…and this video is about that but for art, being together, and human contact. Huge love and thank yous to everyone who got involved and helped out. When everyone was leaning out of their windows filming, I felt that same sense of togetherness and spine-tingling energy that happened at live shows. It made the coldness of performing to an empty room with the band stuck on screens feel even more heartbreaking.”
