Mount Kimbie share a new single, “Shipwreck” following recent tracks, a song their forthcoming studio album The Sunset Violent, available via Warp this Friday, April 5th. In the album’s wake, the band will take the new songs on tour, including stops at Movement, Primavera, and Glastonbury festivals. “Shipwreck”’s accompanying music video is directed by Jay Izzard with creative direction by Duncan Loudon.

The band shared their feelings on “Shipwreck,” one of the album’s earliest creations: “Just a couple of days until album release and here’s the third and final single from us – the song is called ‘Shipwreck.’

“This was one of the earliest instrumental demos we made for The Sunset Violent… and has always been a core part of the storyline of this album.

“We came up with the video concept with Duncan Loudon one evening and Jay Izzard did a great job directing and editing – all came together really quickly. Thanks to all the crew who helped to make it possible!”
