Declan McKenna today returns with his first new music since his 2017 debut album What Do You Think About The Car?. Today sees the release of his brand new politically charged single British Bombs alongside the accompanying video. Watch and listen below.
Declan comments on the new single:
British Bombs is a tune I wrote about the hypocrisy of the British arms trade and the weapons convention in London… I wanted to write a song that was outright against war, in any form. Violence breeds violence and I just don’t think the world is too complex to set a peaceful precedent, but it seems the business of war is what keeps happening. To say it’s a shame feels like a huge understatement.
McKenna first appeared on the scene in 2015 with singles such as Brazil and Paracetamol. Only 16 years of age at the time, the young Brit soon dotted the line with Columbia Records, through which his critically acclaimed debut album What Do You Think About The Car? was released in 2o17. He has since played sizeable festivals such as Glastonbury, Reading / Leeds, Latitude, Lollapalooza, Outside Lands and SXSW and toured across the globe. More tour dates will be announced shortly.
British Bombs is available via all digital outlets. All single proceeds will be donated to charity.
