Two Door Cinema Club have today revealed their new single ‘Talk’.
Unveiled last night on BBC Radio 1 as Annie Mac’s ‘Hottest Record In The World’, the track is a joyfully off-kilter modernist pop masterclass.
‘Talk’ is TDCC’s first new music since the success of 2016 album Gameshow - which marked another UK top 5 album from the Bangor three piece and a campaign which saw them sell out two nights at London’s Alexandra Palace, draw one of the biggest Pyramid stage crowds of the weekend Glastonbury and complete the album cycle with a truly glorious headline set at London’s Community Festival in Finsbury Park - a show that saw them selling 35,000 tickets, marking their biggest headline show to date.
Speaking about the new song, singer Alex Trimble explains: “I love the pop thing. I love experimenting and going to different places, I love doing things that are a little bit wonky and I love the idea of doing something we haven’t done before, why can’t we do all of those things at once? That’s what it was, doing whatever felt right… It sounds like Two Door Cinema Club – not a Two Door Cinema Club there’d ever been before but that’s what I love. We can always do something new but it always feels like something we’ve done.”
‘Talk’ was recorded and produced in London and LA by long time collaborator Jacknife Lee (U2, The Killers, REM). Reflecting the truly global nature of Two Door Cinema Club’s appeal, the reveal of ‘Talk’ was teased internationally last week with a series of Billboards in London, Paris, Brussels, Berlin, Sydney, New York City and Mexico City. The track is accompanied by a wonderfully playful video directed by Namibian-German conceptual artist and designer Max Sidentopf (who recently made the news with his Toto Forever installation).
