Cate Le Bon previews new album with third single "Remembering Me"

11 January 2022, 14:43 | Written by Cerys Kenneally

Cate Le Bon is back with her first single of 2022 "Remembering Me", which is also the third track to be lifted from her forthcoming album Pompeii.

"Remembering Me" will feature on Pompeii alongside last year's "Moderation" and "Running Away", and is accompanied by a Juliana and Nicola Giraffe-directed video.

According to Stereogum, Cate Le Bon said of the song, ""Remembering Me" is a neurotic diary entry that questions notions of legacy and warped sentimentalism in the desperate need to self-mythologise."

Pompeii will follow Le Bon's 2019 album Reward. Aside from drums and saxophones, Le Bon plays every instrument on the record, which was lagrely recorded by herself and co-producer Samur Khouja in Cardiff.

"Pompeii was written and recorded in a quagmire of unease," Le Bon explained. "Solo. In a time warp. In a house I had a life in 15 years ago. I grappled with existence, resignation and faith. I felt culpable for the mess but it smacked hard of the collective guilt imposed by religion and original sin."

She added, "The subtitle is: You will be forever connected to everything. Which, depending on the time of day, is as comforting as it is terrifying. The sense of finality has always been here. It seems strangely hopeful. Someone is playing with the focus lens. The world is on fire but the bins must go out on a Tuesday night. Political dissonance meets beauty regimes. I put a groove behind it for something to hold on to. The grief is in the saxophones."

"Remembering Me" is out now. Cate Le Bon's Pompeii album will land 4 February via Mexican Summer, and is available to pre-order now.
