Lovechild of Hayley Williams and David Bowie Declan McKenna has shared a brand new single ahead of the release of his newest album Zeros, out in August.

Big, glam and glitzy, 'Daniel, You're Still a Child' is a pop song in space. It fires colours and shapes off in its orbit of pulsating bass and the shooting stars of many rock'n'roll-indebted riffs.

McKenna sings like a lost soul. Lost but happy about it. Where is he lost in? Space? His own mind? A bad trip? Who could know. What's certain is that it sounds excellent.

UPDATE: You can now watch the video for the single here:

A video will premiere this afternoon (9 July) at 4pm BST. 

On the character of Daniel, who reportedly appears in another track on Zeros, McKenna said: “You know, Daniel, You’re Still A Child because he’s lost in the aftermath, whether it’s lost in the sauce, stoned, lost in some existential fear or lost his way in some VR game. Daniel is this kid who has so much to prove, he has so much in him but he’s just continually being led astray because the world’s telling him that he’s not ‘normal’.”

McKenna has also announced a huge tour for next year.
