The Vaccines have released the title track and release date for their upcoming album Back in Love City. The British rock band’s fifth studio set is slated to hit shelves, streamers and digital retailers on September 10 via Super Easy / AWAL Recordings.
According to frontman Justin Hayward-Young, the 13-track studio set was inspired by all types of cityscapes – from real to fictional – and the idea took root when he swapped houses (in the vacation) with someone in LA “I literally traded my life with a stranger. I lived in [his] home and drove his car while he lived in mine, but we had never met and had no relationship before, ”he said in a statement.
“Back In Love City” finds the quintet delivering a ready-to-sing chorus and guitar between cheeky Hayward-Young verses. “I drink to drown my sorrows but they still learn to swim / Thank you very much, yes I’m a little skinny / When I exorcise my demons I just take them to the gym / But I hope it didn’t ‘importance / Seven years of abstinence, I couldn’t give up on you for Lent / So I never even asked if your cookies had consent / I acted on a urge, now I sit here and I laments me / But I was hoping it wouldn’t matter, ”he sings the flourishes of lead guitarist Freddie Cowan.

Prior to the pandemic, The Vaccines performed at Glastonbury in 2019 and in 2020 they loaned their song “Internet Disco” with Agent Emotion to Songs for the National Health Service, the charity vinyl benefiting UK frontline workers.
