Declan McKenna has released brand new single ‘Beautiful Faces’, along with sharing details about his second album set to be released in the Spring.
Zeros is released on May 15 through Columbia Records. It was recorded out in Nashville, produced by Jay Joyce and mixed by Spike Stent.
It follows 2017’s critically acclaimed debut album, What Do You Think About The Car? (which helped propel Declan to an eye-watering 230 million streams and 200,000 album sales), and introduced a talented teenager with an ear for a melody and a head full of questions. Questions not just for our highest members of state, but also questions for each and every one of us. Questions that Declan’s whip-smart generation were all baying for the responses to.
Listen to ‘Beautiful Faces’ by Declan McKenna on the Official F1 Tracks Playlist on Spotify.
Zeros is a record that instantly sounds bigger and bolder, and infinitely wiser. Declan might not have received all those answers he had once sought, but he’s moved on and around them, laterally speaking.
The world we find ourselves in is often considered hyper-surreal, almost dystopian in its ridiculousness, and that’s the one Declan chose to focus on throughout Zeros. It’s not stuck in the moment but inhabiting a future with the emphasis on the absurd, otherworldly and unreal. A reflection on our culture through a warped carnival mirror.
