Andy Bell on this single, “The day we recorded ‘All I Want,’ Theresa May had announced that her government would be making firms list their foreign workers. As it turned out that never happened because of the outcry about it, but that was the origin of the line comparing the U.K. to 1930’s Germany. It’s not like Ride are ‘going political’ it’s more that the current state of the UK is so terrible that we could not avoid writing about it when we were writing lyrics for the album.” On the musical composition of the track Loz adds, “For the drums on ‘All I Want,’ Erol and I sat down and went through every beat of a seven-minute improvised drum take, which we edited to create the finished arrangement. It was a very liberating experience! And one I would love to repeat, as there is something special about those first musical reactions to things.”

Ahead of the album release, the band will play a very special headline show at Village Underground on 12 June. Tickets on sale tomorrow (Fri 28 April) here.
