These New Puritans are releasing a new album, Inside the Rose, on March 22 via BMG. Now they have shared another song from the album, “Anti-Gravity,” via a lyric video. Watch and listen below.

The British duo is made up of brothers Jack Barnett and George Barnett. The album is the band’s first new album in six years, since 2013’s Field of Reeds. It includes “Into the Fire,” a new song the band shared back in November that was one of our Songs of the Week. When the album was announced they then shared a NSFW video for its title track, “Inside the Rose,” which was our #1 Song of the Week.

In a press release Jack says “Anti-Gravity” is about “a person or moment suspending your disbelief and bending the rules of the world,” to which George adds: “Irony won’t save you from anything.” The song is inspired by the work of William Blake, including this quote from him: “The imagination is not a state, it is human existence itself.”

Writing sessions for Inside the Rose began in Essex, England in 2015, but they were completed in Berlin, Germany after they relocated there. The album was recorded in Berlin, London, and Southend-on-Sea, England. Most of the recording was done in a former Soviet broadcasting studio in Berlin’s industrial suburbs. It was mixed in Los Angeles. Harley Weir directed the “Inside the Rose” video (which features lots of artful nudity) in collaboration with George Barnett.

Jack Barnett had this to say about the album in a press release: “I want to go beyond myself and my time. That’s the art I like. Whether it’s Francis Bacon or William Blake. You fail, inevitably, but that’s the challenge.”
