This 22 July brings us the third release from Nottingham band Dog Is Dead, the new single “Glockenspiel Song”. It will feature on their debut album, All Our Favourite Stories, which will release this autumn on Atlantic. We’re rather excited for this one, as they have mastered the skill of turning pop music into strange art.
From their website, they’re filming the video for this tune on Sunday between 7pm and 10pm. They need as many people as possible to star in the climactic party scene. The location will be somewhere in the London area but likely to be north or east London. Please email your interest to email@example.com.
Commenting on the upcoming single, lead singer Rob Milton said, “Glockenspiel Song’ is our feel good track about our childhood and the place we grew up in. We always planned to re-release this in the lead up to releasing our debut album as while we were blown away by the reaction first time around we always wanted to rerecord it, make a proper video and get it out there to a wider audience – it’s a hell of a lot of fun to play and a big live favourite so Summer 2012 is the perfect time to get it out there.”
