Cast have shared a new single, ‘Love Is The Call’, which will also serve as the title track for their new album. Check it out below.
A statement about the song describes it as “a surging cocktail of psychedelia played with poised power-pop punch”.
Cast vocalist and guitar player John Power adds of the track: “‘Love is the Call’ is the title track off the new Cast album. It’s a psychedelic pop song, full of bouncing rhythms with soaring melodies and harmonies. It’s a cosmic call to arms, for Love is the Call… Calling…Calling.”
The song is the first new music from Cast in six years and taken from their new album, which will arrive in “early 2024” according to a statement.
Power added that the new album “will feel like a missing link between his time with The La’s and Cast’s first breakthrough with their debut album ‘All Change.’” Check out the new song here.
