After releasing their fifth studio album Hymns earlier this year, Bloc Party return with their new single Stunt Queen.
While Hymns was a bit of a mixed bag, Stunt Queen is an upbeat track that should appeal to those who found the latest album a bit to soft around the edges.
Says frontman Kele Okereke:
Stunt Queen has its genesis in an idea that dates back to the Australian tour we did at the start of 2016. It was an idea that we worked on at sound checks and was one of the first ideas to come along after Justin and Louise joined the band.
Suffice to say, Stunt Queen sounds a tad more like the good old Bloc Party but is still quite poppy. Listen below.
Bloc Party will play one of their biggest ever live shows at the legendary Hollywood Bowl in Los Angelesthis Sunday, September 25th. The band have also announced a rather intimate show at London’s Roundhouse for February 10th 2017. Tickets go on sale this Friday.
