Royal Blood release Typhoons on April 30th.
Royal Blood have premiered the official video for the title-track of their new album, a collaboration with Quentin Deronzier.
It’s the single which helped out in the announcement of Mike Kerr and Ben Thatcher’s third record earlier this month, when Kerr talked again about the specific sonic path they had been looking to take on the response to 2017’s How Did We Get So Dark?.
“We sort of stumbled on this sound, and it was immediately fun to play,” he said. “That’s what sparked the creativity on the new album, the chasing of that feeling.”
“It’s weird, though – if you think back to Figure it Out, it kind of contains the embryo of this album. We realised that we didn’t have to completely destroy what we’d created so far; we just had to shift it, change it.”
“On paper, it’s a small reinvention. But when you hear it, it sounds so fresh.”
He spoke about this and much more during an interview with Live4ever over Zoom at the end of last year.
