Published Jun 15, 2018Dan Mangan has further hinted at his impending fifth studio album with a new single called "Troubled Mind."
Despite its upbeat, danceable sound, the song is a reaction to the increasingly depressing state of the world.
In a press release, Mangan explained that the track is about "the struggle to maintain any kind of mental equilibrium in the day-to-day as we're bombarded with the woes of the world."
"As the inflation of urgency increases, so does our capacity and appetite for it," he added. "I succumb to it as much as the next person."
The track was produced by Simone Felice, and an accompanying lyric video was created by Ben Clarkson. It's a retro-inspired clip that sets both the dance floor and people's heads on fire.

His last full-length studio album arrived under the moniker Dan Mangan + Blacksmith with Club Meds in 2015. In 2016, he released an EP titled Unmake.
