Published Apr 26, 2017Ride are set to deliver their Weather Diaries in June, and before the record arrives, the shoegaze vets have shared another new album cut called "All I Want."
With vocal chops and urgent drums running throughout, the band's latest is marked by a soaring chorus that is bolstered by electronic textures.
In a statement, frontman Andy Bell had this to say about the track:
The day we recorded "All I Want," Theresa May had announced that her government would be making firms list their foreign workers. As it turned out that never happened because of the outcry about it, but that was the origin of the line comparing the U.K. to 1930's Germany. It's not like Ride are 'going political' it's more that the current state of the UK is so terrible that we could not avoid writing about it when we were writing lyrics for the album.
Weather Diaries arrives June 16 through Wichita Recordings. Take in "All I Want" in the player below.
