Metronomy are back with a new song, “Lately,” shared via a video for the track directed by the band’s frontman Joseph Mount in his directorial debut. The inventive clip features miniature versions of the band crawling out of a mixtape and performing on it. It is said to be the first taste of the band’s new album, which is due out this fall. It will be the follow-up to 2016’s Summer 08. Since then Mount also did production work on Robyn‘s Honey (Robyn also appeared on Summer 08). Check out the video below, followed by the band’s upcoming tour dates.

Mount had this to say about the video in a press release: “This music video is a pop promo in the grand tradition of pop promos: End of school on a Friday afternoon, mysterious little people that live in a cassette tape, concerned parents, and special FX. The song and video are both about growing up. I’ve absolutely loved taking the opportunity to direct our own music videos. I have quite strong opinions on what music videos are for in 2019 and how they should be presented and this has been a chance for me to put my money where my mouth is! The most impressive thing I’ve realized is how much of a group effort creating a music video is. I’ve always known it, but this time I’ve obviously worked much closer with the various characters, involved in every department. So, thank you to them.”
