Metronomy return with vibrant new cut "Lately"

30 May 2019, 10:06 | Written by Cerys Kenneally

Metronomy have made their return with bright new offering "Lately".

"Lately" is Metronomy's first single since 2016's Summer 08 record.

The new single arrives with visuals directed by Metronomy frontman Joe Mount. He says, "This music video is a pop promo in the grand tradition of pop promos: End of school on a Friday afternoon, Mysterious little people that live in a cassette tape, concerned parents and special FX. The song and video are both about growing up. I’ve absolutely loved taking the opportunity to direct our own music videos. I have quite strong opinions on what music videos are for in 2019 and how they should be presented and this has been a chance for me to put my money where my mouth is! The most impressive thing I’ve realised is how much of a group effort creating a music video is. I’ve always known it, but this time I’ve obviously worked much closer with the various characters, involved in every department. So, thank you to them."

Metronomy plan to release their upcoming sixth album later this year.

"Lately" is out now. Metronomy play Mad Cool Festival in Madrid on 10 July. Find out more.
