Recently Dublin band Fontaines D.C. announced they were returning with a new album called Skinty Fia (via Partisan Records), which they once again recorded with producer Dan Carey.
So far, we have heard the lead single “Jackie Down The Line” and now, ahead of the LP arriving on April 22, the group shares another preview of it, poetic and anthemic “I Love You”. The single is released alongside the powerful music video, directed by Sam Taylor.
The vocalist Grian Chatten describes the song as “the first overtly political song we’ve written. It’s standing in the centre of our beloved home country as a multitude of things are brought to tragic ends in an apocalyptic state of affairs. That’s how it feels to me, and what I felt when I wrote it”.
Fontaines D.C. will also embark on the big European tour soon, which will include one date in Milan @ Magazzini Generali on March 23 and two more dates later in the summer (in Milan on June 8 and in Padova on August 16).
