Glass Animals collaborate with Denzel Curry on new single 'Tokyo Drifting'

After taking a well earned break to get over the buzz behind their 2016 sophomore album 'How To Be A Human Being', as well as giving drummer Joe Seaward a chance to recover from his road accident last year, Glass Animals are now back with a brand new single.

The new track 'Tokyo Drifting' is the band's first piece of new material since their last full-length, and sees them team up with fast-rising US rapper and singer Denzel Curry.

Speaking about their collaboration, frontman Dave Bayley said, "The first thing Denzel said to me about the track was "this is fire". Then he said, "Is this you flexin'?" and I said - "Yeh...it is...sort of." It’s an ironic internal flex - me as a narrator describing/taking the piss out of an extreme alter ego version of myself; a version of me that can do things that I’m uncomfortable doing. Wavey Davey is my fucked-up Sasha Fierce; he’s a geezer, a street fighter, he can dance, he parties hard, he’s spontaneous. He can take hits and be told he is shit and not care because he’s confident. He can fight everything the world throws at him."

"I think this kind of character is someone we all create for ourselves now to some extent. We have these curated versions of ourselves on the internet - beautiful, edited, cool, distilled versions of us, all slightly super human. You can push and push and push yourself to hide and ignore your vulnerabilities like that...but it comes at a cost. It’s not real and it isn’t sustainable."
