Glass Animals has released a new song called “I Don’t Wanna Talk (I Just Wanna Dance).”
“Talking is great, don’t get me wrong,” says frontman Dave Bayley. “But this pandemic has made so many of us look inwards in a way we maybe haven’t before. The uncertainty in the world and the inability to go out and create new memories makes you dig deep into the past. It really fed people’s deepest insecurities and rattled our foundations in so many ways.”
“It felt like we were all put in a pressure cooker, but there was no way to let out the steam,” he continues. “That’s what this track is about — that pressure cooker exposing and expanding so many cracks, but struggling to fill them in and decompress. I want people to switch their devices off, put this song on, close their eyes, and have that release for a moment.”
You can listen to “I Don’t Wanna Talk (I Just Wanna Dance)” now via digital outlets. Its accompanying video, which, fittingly, includes a whole lot of dancing, is streaming now on YouTube.
“I Don’t Wanna Talk (I Just Wanna Dance)” follows Glass Animals’ 2020 album, Dreamland, which includes the singles “Heat Waves” and “Your Love (Déjà Vu).”
