GLASS ANIMALS AND ALBERT HAMMOND JR RELEASE “I DON’T WANNA TALK” (I JUST WANNA DANCE) REMIX

 

22 APRIL 2022 (TORONTO, ON) – The critically acclaimed, record breaking BRIT and GRAMMY Award nominated global sensations Glass Animals today release "I Don’t Wanna Talk (I Just Wanna Dance)" with acclaimed songwriter and artist Albert Hammond Jr. The original version, released last year, is the first new music from the British four-piece since the colossal global impact of ‘Heat Waves’. The official video, directed by Drew Kirsch (Taylor Swift, Shakira) captures the power of dance in the post-lockdown world, and now guitarist of legendary rock band The Strokes, Albert Hammond Jr, puts his own spin on the song, written by Dave Bayley about letting off steam after being in a pressure cooker for two years. The Oxford band have since become global hitmakers and record breakers, with ‘Heat Waves’ remaining at #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 Chart for five weeks, the longest-leading #1 song by a British group in over 25 years, since Spice Girls’ ‘Wannabe’ in 1997 – and its reign is now among the top 10 longest ever for songs by British groups including The Beatles (see full list below). Producer and frontman Dave Bayley also joined Denzel Curry on stage at Coachella festival last weekend for a surprise performance of ‘Tokyo Drifting’, and becomes the producer of the moment, co-writing, producing and remixing Florence + The Machine’s latest single ‘My Love’, described as “Nick Cave at the Club”.
