The Murder Capital are back with "Only Good Things", the band's first new material since their 2019 debut album When I Have Fears.

Aside from releasing a live EP in 2020 with a cover of FKA twigs' "Cellophane", The Murder Capital's "Only Good Things" marks their first new music since their 2019 debut album When I Have Fears.

The new song is produced by John Congleton, and is, according to a press release, the first taster of the group's new chapter.

Lead vocalist James McGovern says of the new outing, "This track for us has been an exciting evolution for the band. It’s so bright. It’s so colourful. This is a part of the narrative of the overall record that we feel reaches a real place of inner calm, inner peace but at its core, it’s a love song. You get a song like this where, the protagonist in this song is quite simply asking - not pleading - just willing to ask their counterpart to rid them of their intrusive thoughts, the devils on their shoulders and to be truly vulnerable. We’re so excited to go to a place like this because perhaps it’s not what is expected of us. It stood out to me during the creation of this record that it is more about the friends that are still here and celebrating those connections, those relationships and being unafraid of life and it’s many seasons. Where "Only Good Things" stands within the record is at a moment where the sonic and the lyrical narrative especially, are of newfound joy."

The Murder Capital's "Only Good Things" single is out now.
