Kaiser Chiefs are back with ‘Record Collection’, the first single taken from forthcoming new album Duck.
Released on July 26 through Polydor, Duck is the sound of one of the most successful British guitar bands of the millennium reclaiming the creative swagger that underpins their strongest work.
“It’s undeniably fantastic and undeniably Kaiser Chiefs,” says frontman Ricky Wilson. Their seventh record is preceded by ‘Record Collection’, the first piece of new music taken from the album, as well as a huge show at Leeds United‘s Elland Road Stadium on June 8, a homecoming gig with stature needing no explanation.

A surging indie-pop anthem, ‘Record Collection’ captures the uplifting melodies and effortless songcraft of the new album. “It came quickly,” says Wilson of its creation. “It’s a vibe. It’s about the internet and frustration with the internet, about how it rules our lives but we don’t really understand what it is and how we just click accept.”
Alongside the huge anthem ‘People Know How To Love One Another’, ‘Record Collection’ led the way when, at the start of 2018, Duck started to take shape during recording sessions in Wales and England.
