Bloc Party released a new album earlier this year called Hymns. They have now realeased another new song called “Stunt Queen.” It was written and recorded by all of the band’s members, they tweeted; Charlie Andrew produced the track. Hear the song, and read Kele Okereke’s statement on it below.
“Stunt Queen” has its genesis in an idea that dates back to the Australian tour we did at the start of 2016. It was an idea that we worked on at sound checks and was one of the first ideas to come along after Justin and Louise joined the band. Playing the Hollywood Bowl feels like a significant milestone for the band, and we wanted to mark it with a new release. We’re excited to be playing our biggest ever headline gig in the U.S. and releasing new material in the same week.
