Glass Animals Drop New Single I Don't Wanna Talk (I Just Wanna Dance)

Friday, 10 September 2021 Written by Jon Stickler

Glass Animals have unveiled a new single, I Don’t Wanna Talk (I Just Wanna Dance).

Dealing in psychedelic synth melodies and a snappy, bass-driven groove, the track marks the Oxford four-piece's first new music following the release of their third album, 'Dreamland', in 2020.

It comes with a video directed by Drew Kirsch, known for his work with Taylor Swift, Shakira and John Legend. Discussing the lyrical inspiration, songwriter and producer Dave Bayley said:

"Talking is great, don't get me wrong. 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. Relationships changed, friendships altered, and self-confidence was warped. I spent a lot of time talking to my dog, but even more time talking to myself in my head, which was keeping me up all night, and my friends and family were doing the same.

"It felt like we were all put in a pressure cooker, but there was no way to let out the steam. 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."

The band will embark on their rescheduled Dreamland Tour in November. Original tickets will be honoured, and the remainder are on sale now.
