Metronomy - Small World
Our dear friends and neighbours return with an all-time pop banging seventh studio LP.
+ Available on an exclusive Crystal Clear Transparent Vinyl pressing.‘It’s good to be back’ gets its name because, Mount says, “Part of me was thinking, ‘what is the lamest platitude people are going to be saying coming out of the past two years?’, but at the same time, I was thinking how it will be true and how it might feel doing things again.
+ Whilst stocks last, vinyl LP orders will include an exclusive 12" comic illustrated by Lee O'Connor.
+ Whilst stocks last, all orders - LP or CD - will include an exclusive Metronomy Tea Towel, also illustrated by Lee O'Connor.
+ Both vinyl formats are in gatefold sleeves, embossed cover with printed inner-sleeve.
+ CD is in a mini satefold sleeve with an embossed cover. 12 page booklet, printed paper inner sleeve.
I’ve been remembering what it was like as a kid when I’d be sitting in the backseat of my parents’ car and they’d be playing their music and I’d think ‘this is awful’, but there’d be one or two songs I would like. I thought it would be fun to make that kind of album, and this is the song the kids might like. This is the ‘cool’ song,” he adds.
Metronomy’s new album Small World is a return to simple pleasures, nature, and an embracing in part of more pared down, songwriterly sonics, all while asking broader existential questions: which feels at least somewhat rooted in the period of time during which it was made – 2020. Finding appreciation in nature and our roots, while reappraising the things we value as we get older are all things that are part and parcel of the human experience: though it has all felt accelerated and emphasised in this past year or so. Through the tumultuous ebb and flow of the years, Metronomy continues to endure, and Joe Mount’s ability as a songwriter, arranger and producer shines through on Small World, evergreen.

Alongside a weekly playlist of new and old tracks (tune in via the news section), all of the Drift staff also contribute to a weekly 'Drift Recommends' playlist.
Updated every Friday, it's full of new tracks that we love, absolute bangers that have popped back into our heads and all sorts of other weird avenues. It is supposed to sound a little bit like that feeling of walking through the door at Drift.
