Spector have dropped a new single, and it’s got Dev Hynes aka Blood Orange on it.

Singer Fred said “We started The Notion on a spare day we had in Liverpool during the Now or Whenever sessions. It’s been on a real journey since, with Jed coming up with these early Four Tet style guitar loops, which have a really hypnotic feel I love.”

“Then Dev Hynes came to the studio to hear some stuff and ended up free styling the solo in one take. I was worried he’d blown a speaker at one point.

“Lyrically it’s kind of a letter to one’s younger self – a reminder that repressing feelings and emotions is a dangerous precedent, and however bad (or good) things get, nothing is forever. It interpolates various parties, arguments, depressions and a Star Wars quote for good measure.”

Guitarist Jed explained “I was slightly disappointed when a writing session we had for another artist’s project got cancelled on our day off. We were in this big studio without a producer so just plugged my little laptop into the huge mixing desk.”

“It was a bit lonely up there in this cavernous loft space, which reminded Fred of a party we’d been at years ago, so he started singing about that then came out with this amazing chorus which I think a lot of us can relate to… by the end of the day I was really thankful that the other session had been cancelled.”
