Declan McKenna: “This was the last song I wrote for the record, not to pick a favourite child but I think this might be, definitely a step in the direction I’m heading in, I love big powerful choruses that you can just scream, and I wanted this to be one of those.
“I remember writing it just sat home alone with my sister’s guitar in complete euphoria with only a chorus written and nothing else, just shouting the words which are super vague but just summed up all the confusion and frustration I’ve had the last two years.”
What Do You Think About The Car? was recorded in London and LA alongside producer James Ford, except Listen To Your Friends, which was produced by Rostam Batmanglij, Paracetamol, produced by Neil Comber, and Brazil, produced by Max Marlow.
Declan returns from a first trip to Tokyo this month to play two sets at the Glastonbury Festival in the John Peel tent (Friday @ 16:50) and the Left Field Stage (Sunday @ 19:30). These follow Declan’s performance last year on the Park Stage and back in 2015 when he won the Glastonbury Unsigned competition and played at The Rabbit Hole and Williams Green stages.
Declan will also play at this year’s Latitude, TRNSMT, and Reading & Leeds Festivals.
