Fat White Family have shared the new single, "Work", as the latest taster of their forthcoming opus, Forgiveness Is Yours.

"This tune and lyric was written by Nathan Saoudi, with a little help from the indomitable Jess Winter. It became a bit of nightmare in production, like, serious graft. Anyway, it’s one of @braindestiny’s best. The idea for the video came from watching Rocky IV on the telly at our family xmas. Nothing brings people together quite like Rock IV," says lead singer Lias Saoudi.

"The way Stallone single handedly brings down the Soviet Union. We can all learn something form that. I enjoyed it so much I started binging on Rocky films in January. Most of the other ones are shit, but there’s a scene in the third one - Rock III - where Rock has to accept he’s lost it, grown decadent, delusional, flaccid...Apollo Creed (RIP) has to drag his arse to LA to train him back up the old way, the hard way, the way it USED to be…Between both of these lessons one might learn everything needs to about life, about ambition, about success being nothing more than failure in drag...C C Wade were the obvious choice to direct this homage. They are truth. They are two people that allow whatever their working on to absorb them entirely. There is no limit at Haus C C Wade. No ceiling. No basement. No ledge. All in."

"Work" is out now. Forgiveness Is Yours will be released on 26 April via Domino, and is available to pre-order now.
