Next month You Me At Six will be performing all of their singles from front-to-back for a special set at Gunnersville Festival, and they’ve just released a new one to add to that list.
The band’s new single, ‘What’s It Like’, and it’s their first cut of new material single the release of last year’s full-length effort, ‘VI’.
This is what frontman Josh Franceschi had to say about the song and its message.
“‘What’s It Like’ is us flexing our creative muscles. Lyrically, it’s looking at our society in parts in 2019. I feel as though we are living in a time where we’ve lost our way a little bit. There are great innovators and pioneers which we can rely on, but there is also a feeling of the blind leading the blind, and a lack of humility present. Within the title and the chorus I sort of poke fun at those who are libertines or self serving – ‘what’s it like being perfect all the time?’. Life’s not a competition, but people have a tendency to play it out that way.”
You can stream and check out the rather colourful accompanying video for the track below.
At the time of writing, it’s assumed that the song will remain as a stand alone single.
