With his highly-anticipated new album set to land later next month, Declan McKenna has now unveiled the next cut to be lifted from his forthcoming full-length.
The new single 'Daniel, You're Still A Child' was premiered on Annie Mac's Radio 1 show last night (8th July), and follows on from the previously shared tracks 'The Key To Life On Earth' and 'Beautiful Faces' in previewing his sophomore LP 'Zeros', which is due out on the 21st August via Columbia Records.
Speaking about his new offering, he said, “You know, Daniel, You’re Still A Child because he’s lost in the aftermath, whether it’s lost in the sauce, stoned, lost in some existential fear or lost his way in some VR game. Daniel is this kid who has so much to prove, he has so much in him but he’s just continually being led astray because the world’s telling him that he’s not ‘normal’.”
Adding, “Social media isn’t this alien spaceship, it’s the reality in which young people are living in. And I found myself living in this reality. I’m not trying to create a story that’s like ‘bleep bloop isn’t the future mad’ we’re living in that madness now!”
