Glass Animals indie rock band announce details of new album

– Glass Animals have announced details of their new album, as well as a UK tour, Gigwise said.

The new album, How To Be A Human Being, is a “scrapbook” of the band’s time spent on the road, and is set for release on 26 August. Intriguingly, many of its lyrics came from live recordings of people that lead singer Dave Bayley saved on his phone.

“I try to sneakily record people,” he explained, somewhat creepily, “and I have hours and hours of these amazing rants from taxi drivers, strange people we met outside of shows, people at parties. People say the strangest shit when they don’t think they’re ever gonna see you again.”

They’ve also revealed the album’s lead single and accompanying video, ‘Life Itself’.
