Cate Le Bon is back with a new song called Typical Love.

Unfurling over eerie synth effects and horns, the one-off single was recorded during the sessions for her 2022 album 'Pompeii', and was created from a jam between Le Bon and Warpaint drummer Stella Mozgawa. She said:

"The outline, written on bass along to one of Stella's infectious grooves, was taken into the 'Pompeii' sessions where I disassembled and reassembled it many times, but it always felt like a second cousin to the other tracks so was put aside for a rainy day."

Head below to view the video, co-directed by Stefan Ramírez Pérez alongside Le Bon's longtime collaborator Phil Collins, who said:

"Cate has always embodied a timeless mystique which distinctively conjures up the European silver screen. If 'Pompeii' sounded like Antonioni at his most heartfelt and lyrical, then Typical Love, with its elegantly cinematic scope and crystalline propulsion, gestures towards the twisted melodramas of Henri-Georges Clouzot, Georges Franju, as well as the off-kilter glamour of Ilona Baltrush or early Ulrike Ottinger.

"And so, an important point of departure was working with the physicality and alchemy of 16mm, especially the unguarded moments at which the delicate tension between performer and character is acutely palpable."

Le Bon will headline Cardiff's Llais Festival on October 30. She'll also support Courtney Barnett at London's Roundhouse in November.
