Bloc Party's new single "Talons" is not featured on the digital release of their new album Intimacy, but anyone who bought the album can download it for free. It will however be on the physical copy of the cd, which will be released October 27.
Talking about Talons singer Kele said, “we wanted to keep things fresh and we thought the fans would be more excited to get a new song rather than something off the album. Talons is one of the last songs we recorded during the Intimacy sessions and I always had it in mind to be one of the extra tracks we promised for the CD if it turned out well. It turned out great so we decided to make it the next single. I’m enjoying this way of working, not over-thinking things, just make a decision and get on with it! It’s quite liberating in a way, I’m sure it’s going to be the way things happen more and more in the future”."Talons" will be officially released as a single on October 20 with remixes coming from The Moody Boyz, XXX Change, FrankMusik, Midfield General, and Phones.
