It's the second cut to be unveiled from forthcoming album 'Ants From Up There'

Black Country, New Road have released a new single, 'Bread Song'.

The track is the second to be unveiled from the group's forthcoming second album, Ants From Up There, which was announced in October and will be released early in 2022. You can check out 'Bread Song' above.

Speaking about the track in a statement, Black Country, New Road frontman Isaac Wood said: "We wanted to do the first chorus with no time signature. I went to see Steve Reich do Music For 18 Musicians and there's a piece where a bar length is determined by the breadth of the clarinet player, they just play until they run out of breath. I wanted to try that with the whole band, where we don't look at each other, we don't make too many cues, we just try and play without time – but together."

Ninja Tune will release Ants From Up There on February 4, 2022.
