Grouplove’s new album may not have an official title or release date, but what we do have is a little teaser of what to expect.
On Wednesday (Jan. 8), the Los Angeles-based band unleashed their first new song in three years. Titled “Deleter,” the new track is the official first single from their newly-announced fourth studio album.
According to a press statement, “Deleter” is about vocalist/guitarist Christian Zucconi “questioning everything around him: faith systems, his sense of belonging, communities, [and] his own psyche.” Quite serious subject matters for a group that’s breakout hits are about being tongue-tied around someone they like and having “a ways to go.”
“Deleter” was recorded at El Paso’s famed Sonic Ranch with producer Dave Sitek (TV on the Radio, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Weezer).
To coincide with the new song’s release, the group also unveiled its music video. The four-minute clip finds the band dressed up in a variety of jumpsuits running around Los Angeles and performing on a soundstage with a revolving door of art surrounding them (and yes, a duet and some cuddling between Zucconi and bandmate/wife, Hannah Hopper).
While Grouplove’s long-awaited fourth studio album does not have a title or release date yet, the group has confirmed that it will see a 2020 release date. The new year just started, so we’re just going to keep an eye out for that.
Grouplove’s last studio album was 2017’s Big Mess.
