Metronomy have just dropped their latest single Night Owl, taken from their forthcoming new album Summer 08 which drops on July 1st via Because Music. The groovy track captures the ambience of a downbeat soul lost in London’s nocturnal summer swelter.
The accompanying video to ‘Night Owl’ which will drop in the next few weeks, was filmed in the Palm Desert, Palm Springs by the equally unconventional musician/director Mr. Oizo.
Entirely written, played and produced by Joe Mount himself, Summer ’08 finds the multi-instrumentalist reflecting on his experiences around the time that Metronomy first landed a major breakthrough with the Nights Out album.
I wanted to make another record with the naivety of ‘Nights Out’: ten tracks, straight up, upbeat. Write another banger, then another, and don’t really think about it.
Mount’s favourite track on the album reportedly is a duet recorded with Robyn titled Hang Me Out To Dry. Summer 08 will be released on digital, CD and vinyl (with CD included) formats on July 1st.
