Watch the lyric video for The Snuts's latest single below.
Scottish indie heroes The Snuts have announced their new album Millennials, out 24 February 2024 via the band's newly set up label Happy Artist Records.
Accompanying the album announcement is the release of disco-pop single ‘Deep Diving’.
"’Deep Diving’ is a raw exploration of our mortality, the ticking clock of our lives and the consequences of being caught in the maze of one's own mind,” lead singer Jack Cochrane said of the track.
Last May The Snuts shared the project's opening track ‘Gloria’, which was soon followed by ‘Dreams’, as well as an extensive global touring schedule.
Playing headline runs in Europe, America, Japan, Australia, the band also headlined their biggest ever Scottish shows at Glasgow’s SWG3 (twice), and a main stage slot at Reading & Leeds Festival.
On Millennials, frontman Jack Cochrane took the studio lead in collaboration with the band’s live MD Scott Anderson.
Tracks were written on the road, as The Snuts toured the world in support of their previous Top 3 album Burn The Empire, recorded on in tour buses, dressing rooms, hotels and a 300-quid-a-week studio in the Scottish Highlands.
“Leading into this new record, the original idea was: are there any songs we’ve forgotten to write?” says Cochrane. “Are there any ideas and feelings we can dip back into from when we weren’t living in this music world?
"That’s where we, as millennials, came up with the concept. Tapping into the emotions that we maybe hadn’t processed into music. Those big boiling points in your life. The first time you’re falling in love. First time your heart is broken. Those pivotal moments.
"On the last record there was a bit more nuance. With this one, we wanted to see how it would feel if we went more direct on the songs and to connect as easily as possible. I don’t think we’re living in an age now where people want to spend time taking something apart. We want people to feel it the first time they hear it.”
