Metronomy return with new single 'Nice Town'

Following on from their highly-praised 2022 LP 'Small World', Metronomy have now returned to share a brand new single.

The new track 'Nice Town' sees them team up with New York by way of Houston artist Pan Amsterdam for the new release, is set to feature on the follow up to their collaborative collection ‘Posse EP Volume 1’, and marks their first piece of new material on their new home at Ninja Tune.

Speaking about the new offering, the band's Joe Mount said, “I send out a folder of ideas, beats mainly, and see what comes back. Some artists will play around with a number of the tracks, and some will focus just on one thing that works for them. With Pan Amsterdam, it was the latter, one of those tracks that when he sent it back it was like ‘Oh wow’, it just all fell into place.” “It’s sort of an old school rap track,” he continues, “but in the case of Pan he doesn’t just rap, he’s also an incredible jazz trumpet player, who also works with Iggy Pop”

While Pan Amsterdam added, “‘Nice Town’ deals with my own battles. With the internal versus the external or, intangible versus the tangible. I'm always trying to remember that tangibles may applaud my pursuit in attempting to fulfill my purpose but that my purpose is not tangible. Nor is it for my ego to be gratified. A "Town" can be a "Nice" thing to blame during these reckonings with the inner dimensions of one's self. And it's "Nice" to have a new "Town" interrupting this reckoning, and escape to.“
