Melbourne four-piece Cut Copy are back with news of their sixth album Freeze, Melt, and have unveiled the opening track "Cold Water".

"Cold Water" is the second single to be lifted from Freeze, Melt, after last month's "Love Is All We Share".

Vocalist Dan Whitford says of their new outing, "After extensive touring on our last album, "Cold Water" was one of the first new songs to appear. I’d moved to Copenhagen and had been listening to a lot more ambient and instrumental electronic music and as a result "Cold Water" felt quite different to songs we’d made in the past. It was less dance, but more atmospheric. Also the subject matter explores love in today's context, where the climate and fate of the planet are becoming increasingly uncertain. Once we’d finished it, it felt like we'd placed a marker in the ground, guiding us in a new musical direction."

The group's Freeze, Melt album will follow on from 2017's Haiku from Zero. Whitford wrote the album in Copenhagen, and recorded it with the band at Melbourne's Park Orchard Studios. The LP was mixed by Christoffer Berg (Robyn, The Knife) at Svenska Grammofonstudion in Gothenburg.
