Bombay Bicycle Club release their new single, "Turn The World On"

14 September 2023, 12:22 | Written by Tyler Damara Kelly

"Turn The World On" is the latest single from Bombay Bicycle Club's forthcoming sixth album, My Big Day.

The track follows on from, "Diving" featuring Holly Humberstone, the album's title track, and "I Want To Be Your Only Pet". The track is vocalist Jack Steadman’s reflection on becoming a parent for the first time and the hopefulness of youth that’s reminiscent of their album Flaw

“‘Turn The World On' is the last song Jack wrote for the album and also the most personal. Some of us became parents for the first time when we were writing and recording over the last couple of years and 'Turn the World On' is a reflection on becoming a parent and the hopefulness of youth. To capture the spirit of the song, we tried to recreate Jack's childhood bedroom for the video," the band say.

My Big Day is the follow-up to 2020's Everything Else Has Gone Wrong.

Following a run of very special and triumphant ‘karaoke’ fan shows, Bombay Bicycle Club are now pleased to share initial details of four intimate, acoustic shows in unusual locations in association with Sofar Sounds for later this month. Whilst the specific locations of each show remains a secret, they will happen in Cardiff, Leeds, London and Brighton in September.

Fans can enter a competition to win two tickets for the secret show of their choice when pre-ordering the new record from selected independent record shop within each city: Spillers Records (Cardiff), Crash Records (Leeds), Resident Records (Brighton), and Flashback Records (London).

Damon Albarn, Holly Humberstone, Nilüfer Yanya and Jay Som all lend their voices across the course of the record, with a fifth special guest releasing a song with the band later this summer.

"Turn The World On" is out now. My Big Day is released on 20 October, and is available to pre-order.
