British four-piece Glass Animals have announced a new album, I Love You So F***ing Much, and shared its first single, “Creatures in Heaven.” They have also announced a world tour. I Love You So F***ing Much is due out July 19 via Republic. Check out “Creatures in Heaven” below, followed by the album’s tracklist and cover artwork, as well as the band’s upcoming tour dates.

I Love You So F***ing Much is the follow-up to Dreamland, which came out 2020 via Republic and sold a whopping 12 million copies worldwide. That album’s “Heat Waves” was a massive hit, staying at #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 for five week in 2022, after spending 59 weeks on the charts. “Heat Waves” the biggest international hit from a British band in almost 30 years and the first song to reach #1 with a single writer and producer since Pharrell’s “Happy,” released in 2014. All of this success was a bit much for Glass Animals’ frontman, producer, and main songwriter, Dave Bayley.

“Life can change dramatically, but sometimes you aren’t able to change as quickly on a personal level,” he says in a press release. “You end up feeling like a spectator. And then you are asked and expected to be a certain type of person, a different person. But…I wasn’t sure how. It confused me to the point of not knowing who I was or if anything was real.”

Of “Creatures in Heaven,” Bayley adds: “It’s about a moment in time, be it a split second or a year or whatever, having the capacity to be enormously formative and life-changing. Even if it is over. Or if it doesn’t go as planned. Or if it dies too soon. It is still fucking beautiful. The love and care and the feeling in that moment lives forever. It never really dies. If that’s how you choose to see it,”

The band also features Drew MacFarlane (guitar, keys), Edmund Irwin-Singer (bass, keys), and Joe Seaward (drums).
