Yard Act share new single 'Petroleum'

With their highly-anticipated new album set to drop next year, Yard Act have now unveiled the next cut to be lifted from their forthcoming full-length.

The new track 'Petroleum' comes accompanied by a brilliant new video, which stars Starstruck creator Rose Matafeo, and follows on from the previously shared lead effort 'Dream Job' in previewing their sophomore LP 'Where's My Utopia?', which is out on the 1st March via Island Records.

Speaking about the new offering, frontman James Smith said, “I lost it with the crowd in Bognor Regis and told them I was bored and I didn’t want to be there. Me and Ryan had a row after, and Ryan rightly dressed me down for the way I acted. It got me pondering the idea that, now this is a job, what are the requirements of it? People think they want honesty but they don’t, they want me to portray the version of honesty that they've paid to see and that’s part of the illusion.”

Adding about the new video, “‘Petroleum’ finds The Visitor as she stumbles into the hideout of a fearsome Biker gang called The Utopians. She's still on the run from the H.G.E agents. It was a lot of fun shooting this video, and a joy to watch our friend Rose Matafeo bring the leader of The Utopians to life. Though the story isn't being told in a linear format, I hope that the journey of The Visitor through the last three videos is starting to come together and reveal that we're working on something bigger here. More to come!”
