Warpaint return with first new single in five years "Lilys"

30 April 2021, 10:01 | Written by Cerys Kenneally

Warpaint are back with new song "Lilys", marking the group's first new material in five years.

"Lilys" is co-produced and mixed by Sam Petts-Davies (Radiohead, Frank Ocean), and featured on HBO series Made For Love.

Although the band members have been releasing their own material over recent years, "Lilys" marks their first new music as a group since their 2016 album Head’s Up.

Warpaint's TT says of the track, "This track started as an experiment. We were messing around with synth sounds and trying for something textural and almost atonal at times. It wasn’t intended to make its way to our album sessions. But after some mining and editing it became a really nice bed for a melody. It’s one of those things that just flows out without much thought. It’s so sweetly satisfying when that happens!"

Last month the group did share a cover of Gang of Four's "Paralysed", which will feature on next month's tribute album The Problem of Leisure: A Celebration of Andy Gill and Gang of Four.

Warpaint's "Lilys" single is out now.
