Glass Animals are back with vibrant new single "Your Love (Déjà Vu)".

"Your Love (Déjà Vu)" is Glass Animals' second single in three years, after releasing their Denzel Curry collaboration "Tokyo Drifting" in November 2019.

Lead vocalist Dave Bayley says of the new track, "I think we've all found ourselves in fucked up relationships that make us feel sad and helpless. Not necessarily something romantic - maybe it’s with a family member or a friend. A relationship that we know on some level is going to keep breaking our hearts. We let that person back into their lives over and over again, even though it always ends the same. Maybe you don't confront it because you hope it’ll change with time. Or because it’s easier to let it slide and never set boundaries. maybe you think you deserve that unhappiness. Or maybe you find some strange comfort in the chaos."

Bayley adds, "This song is about that…about being addicted to chaos. About doing or allowing something self-destructive because on some level you get off on the sadness that comes of it. It’s about wanting to float around and exist inside of that feeling because it has always been familiar to you. It’s something that a lot of people know from growing up in a tense household…so it can feel right to create that dynamic, even if you don't realise you're doing it."

Glass Animals are yet to follow up their 2016 Mercury Prize-nominated album How To Be A Human Being.

"Your Love (Déjà Vu)" is out now. Glass Animals play London's All Points East festival on 23 May. Find out more.
