Organ Thing of The Day? Like Tracey Emin in her unmade bed listening to The Fall? Let me stop raging against the Arts Council machine for a bit of Idles. It really doesn’t feel like those Idles need us posting about them now, then again it does still feel like we need them., we meed to post news of a new single and let’s sieze the day, here it is, hitting like Joe Calflippingzaghe…

.

“Today, IDLES have returned with a new track – “Mr. Motivator” – a battering ram of positivity that’s also the first preview of their highly anticipated third LP due out later this year. The song doubles down on the (self-admitted) sloganeering and social commentary that’s become the band’s signature, yet here more than ever they’re able to take clichés and turn them into music that’s deeply complex and brutally relevant. Listen/watch the accompanying self-directed music video, which features fan-sourced exercise footage and the band members themselves.

IDLES frontman Joe Talbot says of the song: “We want to start this journey with a means to not only encapsulate the album’s sentiment, but to encourage our audience to dance like no one is watching and plough through these dark times with a two tonne machete of a song and the most beautiful community of scumbags ever assembled. Let’s go. All is love.”
