Cate Le Bon has announced her next record and shared its first single. Her sixth album is titled “Pompeii” and it’s out on February 4th via Mexican Summer Records. The single is “Running Away,” and it comes with a music video directed by Casey Raymond and recorded in the Factory in Porth, Wales. Check out the visual, as well as Le Bon’s upcoming U.K tour dates, below.

“Pompeii” was written and recorded in a quagmire of unease. Solo. In a time warp. In a house I had a life in 15 years ago,” Cate Le Bon said in a statement. “I grappled with existence, resignation and faith. I felt culpable for the mess but it smacked hard of the collective guilt imposed by religion and original sin.”

The subtitle is: You will be forever connected to everything. Which, depending on the time of day, is as comforting as it is terrifying. The sense of finality has always been here. It seems strangely hopeful. Someone is playing with the focus lens. The world is on fire but the bins must go out on a Tuesday night. Political dissonance meets beauty regimes. I put a groove behind it for something to hold on to. The grief is in the saxophones.
