Royal Blood premiere new single Trouble’s Coming

UK rockers Royal Blood are premiering “Trouble’s Coming” as the first single from their upcoming third album.

The song, which pulses with a strong dance floor beat, helped shape the project ahead of its expected arrival next spring.

“It was the moment something started to click — where we started playing over those much more rigid dance beats,” says bassist/singer Mike Kerr. “The breakthrough was realizing that there was real common ground between that and what we’d done before. It’s that AC/DC aspect: Where the quality that makes the riffs seem so cutting is because of that beat.

“Although on the surface we were stepping outside what we’d done before, it didn’t feel at all unnatural; it felt like we were returning to music we’d loved from the very beginning: Daft Punk, Justice, things that were really groove-orientated. It was all about the beat. It felt like familiar territory, but something we’d censored in ourselves.”

Royal Blood have been working on the follow-up to 2017’s “How Did We Get So Dark?”, which debuted atop the UK charts upon its release to duplicate the success of the band’s 2014 self-titled record, the fastest-selling British rock debut album in their native country in three years.

“We’re both so incredibly proud to say that ‘Trouble’s Coming’ is OUT NOW,” explains Kerr and drummer Ben Thatcher. “Royal blood, sweat and tears of joy have been shed to get to this very moment, but it feels so incredible to finally let you in to our new world.

“We made this wholeheartedly for ourselves, and allowed everything we love about music to reveal itself. We’re totally besotted with every detail and this is just the beginning of something really special! We hope you get as much of a buzz out of it as we do. It's all yours now.”
