Yard Act have announced their new album Where's My Utopia? alongside its lead single & video ‘Dream Job’.
Out on 1 March 2024 via Island, Where’s My Utopia? is the follow up to the Leeds band’s critically-acclaimed debut record The Overload which arrived in January 2022. The Overload was shortlisted for the Mercury Prize after a slew of positive reviews, national radio playlistings and a placing at #2 in the Official Charts. The new album is a co-production between Yard Act and Gorillaz member Remi Kabaka Jr. ‘Dream Job’s video was directed by James Slater, the band and director’s 7th collaboration (“with many more to come”).
On The Prize, the new full-length from Nashville songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, and visual artist Hannah Wicklund, soaring melodies sail above expertly constructed, eloquent – and undeniably hooky – arrangements. Pair her aching, enchanting vocals, all woodsmoke and honey, with her signature fiery guitar work, and you already have a profoundly compelling formula. Add in arena ready, shout-along choruses and a radio-ready sheen courtesy of producer Sam Kiszka (Greta Van Fleet), and you have a record ready to take its rightful place among those rare creations that can be considered truly timeless.
