Listen :: Bastille debut new single ‘Quarter Past Midnight’
Words: Sam Geary
Premiered earlier tonight (May 9) Archie Hottest Record In The World on BBC Radio 1, with Bastille frontman Dan Smith talking to Nick Grimshaw, sitting in for Annie Mac, ‘Quarter Past Midnight’ is the first track from their upcoming third album.
“It’s the first single from our new album and it’s kind of like an opening scene-setter. It’s about escapism, when you want the night to keep going and try to lose yourself in it for whatever reason. We wanted to capture that feeling and have it sound a bit raucous and messy and euphoric," said Smith.
