Max Bloom has unveiled new song "Palindromes" as a second taster of his upcoming solo album Pedestrian.
"Palindromes" follows last month's lead single and title-track "Pedestrian", and is a song about how he "got together with my girlfriend Anna," Bloom says. He adds, "We were best friends for years, then she broke up with her boyfriend and we got together quite suddenly. It was completely unplanned, but when it happened it felt like a lucid dream. I wanted to write something to commemorate it (Anna has also written a few songs about it too), and after the darkness and grief of Perfume, it felt cathartic for me to write this song."
Pedestrian was recorded at Bloom's home studio in Hackney, and features drums/percussion from Adam Gammage (Charli XCX, Baxter Dury).
Bloom also wrote nearly all the tracks on the album, aside from "All The Same" and "Under Green Skies" which were co-written with his girlfriend Anna Vincent.
The upcoming album will be the first release on Bloom's new label Ultimate Blends, which will be a home for his future projects and productions.
