Villagers return with new single "Summer’s Song"

09 July 2019, 10:26 | Written by Cerys Kenneally

Villagers have shared their first new single of the year, "Summer's Song".

"Summer's Song" is the first glimpse of new Villagers material since their 2018 album The Art of Pretending to Swim.

Villagers frontman Conor O'Brien wrote and produced the track, which was mixed by Dave Fridmann (Tame Impala, Flaming Lips, MGMT).

Offering some words on the new single, O'Brien says, ""Summer's Song" is the closest I'll ever get to writing a pure pop song. I just had to roll with it and I'm glad I did; it was really just an excuse to make the horns sound like sunbeams. Boy it's fun to play live. I can't quite believe we managed to get the magical touch of Dave Fridmann in on the mix."

"Summer's Song" is out now via Domino. Villagers play Green Man Festival next month. Find out more.
