Metronomy announce new album with playful single "Salted Caramel Ice Cream"

19 June 2019, 10:43 | Written by Cerys Kenneally

Metronomy have announced their first album in three years, Metronomy Forever, alongside the playful new single "Salted Caramel Ice Cream".

"Salted Caramel Ice Cream" is Metronomy's second single from the record, arriving after last month's "Lately".

Speaking about the new single and video, vocalist Joe Mount - who also directed the video - says, "Years ago a friend of mine gave me a VHS tape of the MTV show 120 Minutes. It’s something I’d get him to do every so often as I was a bit obsessed with music TV at the time. On one particular tape was the video for "Sonne" by Rammstein, I’d never seen them before and it blew my mind. This video is a sort of homage to that, but with an added story about the gentrification of ice cream parlours."

Metronomy's new album Metronomy Forever is their first since 2016's Summer 08, and features 17 tracks.

Joe Mount adds of the new record, "What happens is when you’re making music and you enter a world where you have achieved some sort of celebrity no matter how large or small you start to think about yourself in terms of legacy and what you’re going to leave behind. And then you realise that’s limited to the interest people have in you. In the end I feel completely comfortable with it. The less importance you place in any art the more interesting it can become in a way… I’m making music, I’m going to do some concerts, I need to feed my children."
