Here we go! Gang of Youths will release a new single, “The Man Himself,” next Thursday, October 7.
It’s the first single from the band’s upcoming new album, which at this moment remains unnamed; word on the street is that the album may also carry the title The Man Himself.
The band has already played “The Man Himself” live twice; the song first appeared in the band’s set during the All Points East festival on August 30, then appeared again four days later at the Neighbourhood Weekender festival.
From some of the fan clips posted online after those festivals, it sounds like an upbeat rock song with a rousing chorus. One clip that’s since been deleted had a lyric that sounded like “humming away, humming away like everything’s fine.” Hmmmmmm……….
