After returning at the start of the year to deliver their comeback single 'Vegetable', Happyness have now announced their plans for a new studio album, arriving in the coming months.
The new full-length 'Floatr' will become their first LP since 2017's 'Write In', is being previewed by the new lead track 'Seeing Eye Dog', and is expected to land on the 1st May.
Speaking about their new release, the band's Jonny Allen said, “Some of our songs take ages to write, but this one was vomited out in about an hour the day after a really sudden break up when I was fully in shock. It’s about realising how much you don’t know about the people you know best. And that feeling where your world splits in two for a while, like you've come out of lightspeed into the infinite gaping silence of time. But also like a spider being let out of a cup or a fish thrown back - when you’re like wow everything’s so alien and beautiful haha”
While bandmate Ash Kenazi added, "There is a reason that PRIDE exists. Coming out is a total celebration of life. The circumstances around which you come to reveal your sexuality are often really tough, and being that vulnerable, and coming to be proud of your identity is a really important thing to share and celebrate. Floatr has helped us process some of the difficult stuff because everybody needs that."
