Metronomy have released a new album, Metronomy Forever, today via Because Music. Today they have also shared a full-on video for "Wedding Bells," which they previously shared a lyric video for. Now that the album is out, you can also stream the whole thing below. Also below are their upcoming tour dates.

Daniel Brereton directed the "Wedding Bells" video. It features the band performing at a house party that soon turns into a food fight.

Brereton had this to say about the video in a press release: "I got the feeling from Joe that he wanted do something free and fun, so I came up with an idea that didn't take itself too seriously as a retaliation to the bad news we get every day. I imagined a love triangle where the lead character likes his best friend's girl and he can't stop thinking about her - we've all been there. It was fun to make something that doesn't try to be something it's not, just simple, innocent fun. It takes place at a party, and getting to do a food fight and pillow fight was extremely liberating."

Metronomy Forever includes "Lately," a new song the British band shared via a video in May (it was #1 on our Songs of the Week list). When the album was announced in June they shared a video for another new song from it, "Salted Caramel Ice Cream" (which was also one of our Songs of the Week). Then they shared the album's "Walking in the Dark," via a video for the track (it was also one of our Songs of the Week). Then the band shared another song from the album, "Wedding Bells," via a lyric video for the track that features the lyrics written on a wedding program (it was also one of our Songs of the Week).

Metronomy Forever is the follow-up to 2016's Summer 08. Since then Mount did production work on Robyn's Honey (Robyn appeared on Summer 08). Mount also moved from Paris to the English countryside, which influenced the album.

Mount had this to say about Metronomy Forever in a previous press release: "What happens is when you're making music and you enter a world where you have achieved some sort of celebrity no matter how large or small you start to think about yourself in terms of legacy and what you're going to leave behind and then you realize that's limited to the interest people have in you. In the end I feel completely comfortable with it. The less importance you place in any art the more interesting it can become in a way...I'm making music, I'm going to do some concerts, I need to feed my children."
