Cut Copy have announced a new album, Freeze, Melt, and shared a new song ‘Cold Water’.
Freeze, Melt is due out August 21.
Cut Copy frontman Dan Whitford had this to say about the song in a press release: “After extensive touring on our last album, ‘Cold Water’ was one of the first new songs to appear. I’d moved to Copenhagen and had been listening to a lot more ambient and instrumental electronic music and as a result ‘Cold Water’ felt quite different to songs we’d made in the past. It was less dance, but more atmospheric. Also the subject matter explores love in today’s context, where the climate and fate of the planet are becoming increasingly uncertain. Once we’d finished it, it felt like we’d placed a marker in the ground, guiding us in a new musical direction.”
The Australian electronic band’s last album was 2017’s Haiku From Zero.
