Glass Animals announce their fourth studio album, I Love You So F***ing Much

British band Glass Animals have announced details of their fourth studio album, I Love You So F***ing Much, alongside new single, "Creatures in Heaven".

The forthcoming album is the follow-up to 2020’s critically revered Dreamland, which gave life to "Heat Waves" – the record-breaking song that became the biggest international hit from a British band in almost 30 years. It was the first song to reach number one with a single writer and producer since Pharell’s "Happy", and led to the pop world’s biggest acts, including Florence Welch, all wanting to work with Glass Animals frontman, songwriter and producer, Dave Bayley. But the birth of I Love You So F***ing Much was an existential crisis.

Dave found himself struggling to make sense of this newfound global stardom, having watched it all happen while the world was in lockdown. “Life can change dramatically, but sometimes you aren’t able to change as quickly on a personal level. You end up feeling like a spectator. And then you are asked and expected to be a certain type of person, a different person. But…I wasn’t sure how. It confused me to the point of not knowing who I was or if anything was real.

"These words take on a different meaning every time you say them," Dave Bayley says of the album title. "The universe may make us feel overwhelmingly small, but we have this human connection that is far vaster and more mysterious. Love comes in an infinite number of forms and shapes and sizes. It is so complex, and so powerful that even witnessing the tiniest instance of it can change your life forever.”

I Love You So F***ing Much, is set to be released on 19 July via Polydor Records.
