Rosa Slade and Katy Young are previewing the follow up to 2014's Choir Of Echoes (and standalone AA-side "Substitute"/"Say What You Mean"), which is due out next spring.

In the year's since Choir Of Echoes Slade and Young have been hard at work with the Deep Throat Choir

"Heartbreak takes ages," says Young of the new single's origins. "That's kind of the best and the worst thing about it. I was pretty heartbroken and trying all these tactics to make it finish faster; going out, staying in, talking about it, not talking about. But at some point I realised that when I was okay again, it would be because the love was done. And so 'Slow Fade' is about letting it take its time - partly because you don't really have a choice and partly because a bit of me wanted to make that pretty sadness last as long as I could."

Peggy Sue will play the Shacklewell Arms in London on 2 December. Tickets are available now.
