Declan McKenna has launched the second track to be lifted from his
forthcoming second album, Zeros.
The Key To Life On Earth is streaming now alongside a new video
featuring a special guest role by Alex Lawther from Netflix/C4’s smash
hit series, The End Of The F***ing World.
Declan’s new album “Zeros”, previously scheduled for release in late
May, now moves back to 21st August.
Shot in East London pre-lockdown by director Will Hooper (who also
directed Beautiful Faces), the video brings together two young British
faces doing very good things in different worlds. That they look alike
proves fortuitous here, and something their fans have been quick to
point out at every conceivable opportunity.
It’s a record that instantly sounds bigger and bolder, and infinitely
wiser. Declan might not have received all those answers he had once
sought, but he’s moved on and around them, laterally speaking. The
world we find ourselves in is often considered hyper-surreal, almost
dystopian in its ridiculousness, and that’s the one Declan chose to
focus on throughout “Zeros”. It’s not stuck in the moment but
inhabiting a future with the emphasis on the absurd. Otherworldly.
Unreal. A reflection on our culture through a warped carnival mirror.
