Death From Above 1979 have announced the release of their new album, Is 4 Lovers, on March 26th via Universal Music Canada/ Spinefarm (pre-order here). The new album, which Grainger and Keeler wrote, produced, mastered and recorded entirely by themselves.
The duo also released their new single, “One + One”. Watch the new video below.
“‘One + One’ is a love song,” says Grainger. “It’s the karmic sequel to Romantic Rights. My wife, Eva, became pregnant not long after we started working on the song and after hearing an early version she said, ‘I wish this song was dancier’. So I went back into the studio and re-worked the drums. As the record was taking shape, every time I would come home from the studio the baby would start dancing in Eva’s belly. Even before I walked in the room the party would start. One plus one is three, that’s magic!”
In the music video, created as a collage of disparate frames and moments inspired by the photography of artist David Hockney, was shot in Marmora, Ontario and directed by Eva Michon, who also helmed the band’s 2014 documentary, Life After Death from Above 1979.
“Since we started playing people would come up to the stage and after and say: ‘I can’t believe there’s just two of you,’” explains Grainger. “The video for ‘One + One’ is Eva’s way of showing that our band is greater than the sum of its parts. It’s Death From Above 1979 in multitudes.”
With the band leaving subtle hints at what was to come across social platforms over the past few months, a hotline was launched where the lyrics of “One + One” were recited in a dramatic reading by Keeler.
