Lush are "Out Of Control" on their first single in two decades

The recently reformed Lush have shared "Out Of Control", their first new track since 1996.

The song is the first taste of upcoming EP Blind Spot, which is out 15 April on their own Edamame ahead of their first UK dates in 20 years. It was recorded last summer with Jim Abbiss (Adele, Kasabian, Arctic Monkeys) and Daniel Hunt (Ladytron).

Speaking in a press release about the EP, Miki Berenyi says: "It certainly took some time to set up, but once we were in the studio, everything came together incredibly quickly. It was great fun! It’s been a long time since I’ve written Lush lyrics, and I realised early on with this EP that what I wrote about then is not what I feel comfortable writing about now. My perspective, and what is close to my heart, has changed, and I think that’s conveyed in the songs."

Phil King adds: “I know I’m biased, but I work for a music magazine, and I heard music all day and so much sounds non-descript or derivative. But Emma just has this way of writing unusual chord changes that manage to weave lovely melodies over the top, and it immediately sounds like Lush.”

Watch the video for "Out Of Control" below, directed by Martin Masai Andersen and Kim Thue.. The band's upcoming UK headline shows are after (though there are loads of festival dates queued up as well).
