Black Country, New Road have delivered new track "Bread Song" as the second outing from their forthcoming album Ants From Up There.
Frontman Isaac Wood says of the release, "We wanted to do the first chorus with no time signature. I went to see Steve Reich do Music for 18 Musicians and there's a piece where a bar length is determined by the breadth of the clarinet player, they just play until they run out of breath. I wanted to try that with the whole band, where we don't look at each other, we don't make too many cues, we just try and play without time - but together."
Ants From Up There will follow the group's Mercury Prize-nominated debut album For the first time, which landed in February this year. The new album was recorded at Chale Abbey Studios, Isle Of Wight, throughout summer with live engineer Sergio Maschetzko.
Tyler Hyde says of the album, "We were just so hyped the whole time. It was such a pleasure to make. I've kind of accepted that this might be the best thing that I'm ever part of for the rest of my life. And that's fine."
