London four-piece Yuck have been fairly quiet since the 2016 release of their third album, Stranger Things, but frontman Max Bloom has kept busy, releasing several solo singles and now he’s back with a new one, “Bottle,” and we’re pleased to premiere it. “Bottle” was borne of heartbreak and the collapse of a long-term relationship, which also helped motivate Bloom to start focusing on his solo music in 2017. “Bottle” bears some of the ‘90s alternative rock influences also found in Yuck, but takes a more melodic path. The song will be out on digital platforms this Friday via Anniversary. In the meantime listen to the song below, followed by Bloom’s upcoming tour dates.

Bloom had this to say about the song in a statement: “This song is about the moment when my ex-girlfriend and I ended our relationship after eight years. It was just after Christmas, and we met up in a busy bar in Soho. She gave me a bag of Christmas presents from her family. She broke her stoicism for one second to say the words ‘I always thought that we’d be together forever,’ and I completely broke down. Suddenly, for the first time in eight years, I found myself completely alone. I’ve come a long way since then, but the way I felt at that moment will stay with me forever.”

“Bottle” is Bloom’s third single this year and follows “Call Me When It’s Over,” released in August. Bloom is at work on a solo album, which is due out next year.
