Young Fathers have returned with their first new track in over four years.

Characteristically hard to categorise, Geronimo marks the first new music from the Scottish trio since their 2018 album 'Cocoa Sugar'. Dark, yet soulful, the alluring offering was introduced online by the band:

"A good time trying. That’s what Ma said, she was smiling, but it was meant as a warning.

"It's a track about contrast, because life is contrast – pushing through, giving up, all at the same time. Wanting everything and then wanting nothing, then wanting everything again. It’s kind of reflective of where we are at the moment, trying to remember how to do this again.

"Trying to make music and all of the other stuff that comes along with it. Trying to forget all the bad bits, just trying to get somewhere. And that’s where we are right now, trying to get somewhere.

"It’s the tenderness in toil, we had expelled a bunch of stuff with a lot of drive and wilder energy beforehand but this one had focus. It widened the scope again for us personally, that’s where the real high comes from. We grew another arm. We surprised ourselves.

"So coming back with a track called Geronimo feels quite fitting. Just the 3 of us again, but still in a fucking basement."
