Royal Blood release new single Trouble’s Coming

From the NME.

“This track was a really pivotal moment for us,” Royal Blood frontman Mike Kerr tells NME about the band’s long-awaited comeback single ‘Trouble’s Coming’. “We were really hungry and searching for something that felt new, but wouldn’t destroy what we’ve spent years creating. We needed something that we genuinely hadn’t done before, and this was the first song that came together.”

Daft Punk-flavoured blast of bombastic dance rock, ‘Trouble’s Coming’ was the turning point that inspired the mood of the Brighton rock duo’s upcoming third album – their first since 2017’s brooding ‘How Did We Get So Dark‘. This time, their muse had some moves.

“We realised that this much dancier sound really leant itself to the kind of music we were already making,” says Kerr. “We found this through-line between classic rock, dance music and disco music where, to me, some of the best fretting ever is AC/DC. They always play over this straight beat. It’s just like a heartbeat through the songs that never stops. Then these riffs just cut over the top. All we had to do was speed it up and it gave us this new approach to what we did. It felt like we were seeing in colour for the first time.

“We had the same level of excitement as we had on our first record, but stumbled across something genuinely unique. This song was the fuel on the fire.”
