You Me At Six have dropped brand new single ‘What’s It Like’, their first new material since their acclaimed Top 10 album ‘VI’.
The track was released ahead of their highly anticipated return to the Reading & Leeds Festival Main Stage this month as well as their biggest outdoor UK headline gig to date at Gunnersbury Park in London this September as part of the Gunnersville Concert Series.
Frontman Josh Franceschi commented, “‘What’s It Like’ is us flexing our creative muscles. Combining our favourite genres and bringing them together in one track. For me lyrically, it’s looking at our society in parts in 2019. I definitely feel as though we are living in a time where we’ve lost our way a little bit. There are great innovators and pioneers which we can rely on, but there is also a feeling of the blind leading the blind and a lack of humility present. Within the title and the chorus I sort of poke fun at those who are libertines or self serving – ‘what’s it like being perfect all the time?’. Life’s not a competition, but people have a tendency to play it out that way.”
