Originally set for release on July 10th, U.K psych-pop band Glass Animals have postponed the release of their third album Dreamland for August 7th.
In a post on their social channels, the band says the decision came in the light of social justice protests gripping not only the United States, but the world at large as citizens take to the streets in solidarity with those seeking justice for those murdered at the hands of police.
"In order to respect and support the ongoing Black Lives Matter movement,” the band says in a press release, they have now postponed the album, but are offering up a new track to hold fans over.
Singer Dave Bayley says "Heat Waves" is about "realising you can’t make everyone happy. and realising it’s ok to be defeated by something. We are often expected to 'be strong' and to swallow our sadness. Failing to do that is seen as weakness. So we try to cover up our feelings and hide inside of TV shows or video games or drink or drugs, but being vulnerable should be a positive thing."
