Info for How To Be A Human Being

"How to Be a Human Being" is the title of the album and it's due out in the late summer. The exact release date, tracklist, and cover art is all still forthcoming, but the band have shared the album's first single, "Life Itself," which you can stream below. It's another immaculately produced gem, but with surprisingly down-to-Earth lyrics about being unemployed.

Glass Animals singer/producer Dave Bayley commented on the song and album in a press release: "Things have changed a lot for us over the past two years. Instead of sitting in the studio we've been in a different city every night; making friends, hearing crazy stories, getting in crazy trouble. So much has happened! All of it made me want to think about people, and write something rawer and more human. 'Life Itself' is one of those. It's a guy who was born a bit strange, and struggles to become part of society. Because of that he spends more time alone in his own head, getting stranger, and it becomes an awful cycle of doom.

"Sound and production-wise...we've been buzzing off of the amazing energy of the crowds we've been playing to. As crowds grew, they got a bit more feral and so did we. We found ourselves going a bit wilder on stage, and playing heavier, grittier, high-energy versions of our songs, changing them every night. Now we've tried to put some of that energy, spontaneity, and sound on tape."

The album is the follow-up to 2014's debut album Zaba. Below also are some North American tour dates in July.

Glass Animals
is an English indie rock band from Oxford. The four members of Glass Animals have known each other since the age of fourteen, but they only started making music together after they finished school and Dave Bayley showed the other members the music he made and asked them to be in a band.

After the release of the EP Leaflings they decided to take it slow and focus on their university degree for a year. In 2013 they came in contact with Paul Epworth, an English music producer, and they signed with his label Wolf Tone. After 4 more EP's, a single, a tour with St. Vincent and a performance at SXSW 2014, they announced they will be releasing their first album Zaba in June 2014.

This album contains no booklet.
