After returning at the end of last year with their comeback single 'R U 4 Me?', Middle Kids have now announced their plans for a new studio album, arriving in the coming months.
The new full-length 'Today We're The Greatest' follows up their 2018 debut record 'Lost Friends', is being previewed by the new lead single 'Questions', and is set to be released on the 19th March via Lucky Number.
Speaking about the new LP, the band's Hannah Joy said, “I want to make music that loves its listener. Music that makes people feel seen, seen in the tiny little places that hide away in their hearts. I want people to hear our music, and feel a sense of love. And when I say love, it can be challenging, intense and tough. But it’s in the guts.” She added: “It can be easier to live dualistically, splitting the world in two. We want to be able say it’s this or it’s that, but sometimes it’s both -- and can we hold both? Can we hold the brokenness? Can we hold the beauty? That has definitely been a defining bit of this album, the fragility in that dance.”
While adding about the new single, “I used to drink a lot and most of my previous relationships revolved around this. I don’t think I ever really knew them or they me as a result. Questions is about people being around each other but not being close. People who are in intimate relationships can stop asking questions of each other because they are uncomfortable and confusing.”
