The Stockport five-piece revealed the first visuals of their new material as frontman Tom Ogden told Radio X about when to expect a new album.
Blossoms have revealed the first listen and official video for their Your Girlfriend single.
Watch the video above, which sees the band dress up as their favourite horror characters, Teen Wolf, Dracula, Frankenstein's Monster, The Bride of Frankenstein and
Produced by James Skelly, Rich Turvey and the band at Parr Street Studios in Liverpool, the single comes ahead of the band’s biggest headline show to date at Stockport County’s Edgeley Park Stadium this Saturday, 22 June.
Speaking about the new single, the band’s Tom Ogden said: "I think I saw it on the telly or maybe heard it on another song. Someone was saying they’re in love with their friend’s girlfriend and I thought ooh that’s a good, strange take on a love song. A different angle to go at and it’s obviously not about me, just to be clear! I was listening to a lot of Talking Heads at the time, and I think that shines through in the way the song grooves. These are some of my favourite lyrics I’ve ever written, there’s a lot of humour in there."
Talking to Radio X's Gordon Smart about the track Ogden added: "I wanted to write something that wasn't necessarily about me."
He added: "You kind of you need to challenge yourself as a songwriter to do something different and get out of your comfort zone."
Watch him talk about the track and the video below:
Asked when we can expect the band's third album, the frontman revealed: "Next year."
The single is the first new music to come from the band since the release of their 2018 sophomore album, Cook Like You, which included the title track, There's a Reason Why (I Never Returned Your Calls) and I Can't Stand It.
