Bombay Bicycle Club are back with "Racing Stripes", the third single to be lifted from their first album in five years, Everything Else Has Gone Wrong.
Jack Steadman says of the new single, "It's a good example of the emotional rollercoaster you go through. I was like, this is it, I can't do this any more, and then the next morning you're like, ah, this is a really good song. The relief!"
Bombay Bicycle Club's fifth LP was largely recorded in the US with producer John Congleton (St. Vincent, Sharon Van Etten, The War On Drugs), and is their first since 2014's So Long, See You Tomorrow.
When announcing their new album, Bombay Bicycle Club said of the title, "This is an album for anyone who’s ever turned to music in a time of crisis, whether personal or political. It’s about the solace one can get from listening to music or playing music when everything else has gone wrong. It’s about finding kernels of hope and renewal in dire situations."
