Danish dream-pop veterans Mew return with "Carry Me To Safety", the first single from upcoming seventh studio LP Visuals.
Visuals marks a quick comeback following 2015's +-, which arrived following a half-decade-plus wait.
"The live shows around that album saw us hit a creative peak, writing tracks on the road and the spark was lit," says frontman frontman Jonas Bjerre. "Breaking the normal cycle felt right and we wanted to make an album spontaneously retaining the energy we’d generated on that world tour, rather than wait the normal three or four years.”
The album was recorded and self-produced in Copenhagen. A press release describes each song as "representing its own little chapter and narrative."
"It was pretty dark last year on many levels, so lyrically that definitely came into play, it’s an important reminder to treasure the here and now,” Bjerre says of the ideas and themes on Visuals.
