Australian synth-pop group Cut Copy have this week announced a new album 'Freeze Melt' and also released a new song 'Cold Water.' The album is a follow up to 2017's 'Haiku From Zero' and is due for release on 21st August 2020. The 8 track instalment will be released via Cutters Records/The Orchard.
Earlier this year in May the band treated us to 'Love Is All We Share' which will also make up part of the album.
Cut Copy frontman Dan Whitford posted the following statement on his instagram: “After extensive touring on our last album, ‘Cold Water’ was one of the first new songs to appear. I’d moved to Copenhagen and had been listening to a lot more ambient and instrumental electronic music and as a result ‘Cold Water’ felt quite different to songs we’d made in the past. It was less dance, but more atmospheric. Also the subject matter explores love in today’s context, where the climate and fate of the planet are becoming increasingly uncertain. Once we’d finished it, it felt like we'd placed a marker in the ground, guiding us in a new musical direction.”
Dan had been keeping himself busy in the winter and wrote the album in Copenhagen before re-joining the rest of the band (drummer Mitchell Scott, guitarist Tim Hoey and bass player Ben Browning) at Melbourne’s Park Orchard Studios to record the album.
