Glass Animals have released their first new music since the beginning of the pandemic, ‘I Don’t Wanna Talk (I Just Wanna Dance)’ is the first music since Glass Animals reached a new level of popularity and critical acclaim with their third album “Dreamland”.

Premiered on triple j Breakfast, ‘I Don’t Wanna Talk (I Just Wanna Dance)’ has all the sticky groove and psychedelia you’d expect from the British band. It’s a lot more urgent than ‘Heat Waves’ and with its cutting guitar lines and Wavey Davey’s spacey falsetto.

Frontman Dave Bayley said the new single is intended to provide a musical release from the pressure cooker of a global pandemic that’s rattled our lives and fed our worst insecurities.

“Being locked down in England for so long, you end up going a bit stir crazy. You start over-thinking everything. I was talking to myself in my head all night, staying up all night, not being able to sleep.”

“The song is about the realisation that what I wanted and needed most – what everyone probably needed most – is to just go out and see their friends and have fun. Have something to enjoy; we all need that little bit that makes us feel human. That’s what this song is about.”

“It’s really hard because you expect and hope you can play the songs live [after releasing an album] and see people smile and that is the whole reason you do it. We haven’t had that.”
