Glass Animals has shared a new song called “It’s All So Incredibly Loud,” which will appear on the band’s forthcoming album, Dreamland.

The track, which is available now for digital download, is accompanied by a video starring frontman Dave Bayley as he stands on a diving board, contemplating whether or not to jump into the pool. You can watch it streaming now on YouTube.

“The entire song is only about three seconds of life,” Bayley explains. “I think most people have been in a position where they have had to tell someone something that they knew was going to devastate them. Something that would change their life.”

“It’s about the silence that occurs between those words leaving your mouth and the other person reacting,” he continues. “It’s the most deafening thing I’ve ever experienced. The video is meant to be a metaphor for the build-up before that, and then the sudden explosion of quiet that lasts forever.”

Dreamland, the follow-up to 2016’s How to Be a Human Being, is due out August 7. It also includes the previously released songs “Your Love (Déjà Vu),” “Heat Waves,” “Dreamland” and “Tokyo Drifting” featuring Denzel Curry.
