Asylums‘ next album Genetic Cabaret will be released on July 17th via their own Cool Thing label.
Whilst lots of other artists are responding to the current global situation by delaying their music, Asylums have said the album’s lead single A Perfect Life In A Perfect World has attained more immediate prominence in the context of current events.
“The sentiment of A Perfect Life In A Perfect World has taken on a different meaning for me over the last month or so which has led to us deciding to release it now,” Luke Branch explained.
“Originally it was about my own struggles with low moods and not always living in the moment, thinking about how life could be all the time. Now during this period of uncertainty and profound challenge for the country and the world it feels more like a song about the future, a song about how we might want to conduct ourselves after this period of isolation and reflection. I hope very much that centres around kindness, community, creativity and compassion.”
