Following recent performances at Electric Fields, Tramlines and Latitude Festival, THE FUTUREHEADS have released the video for their current single “Listen, Little Man!” It’s the second single to be taken from their forthcoming album Powers, which will be released on Nul Records via The Orchard on August 30, 2019. “Listen, Little Man!” is a song named after a book by controversial therapist Wilhelm Reich. The accompanying video was directed by Marc Corrigan. “It has a perfect balance between lightheartedness and menace which marries very well with the concept of the song,” says vocalist/guitarist Barry Hyde. “Playing with the micro and the macro and highlighting the insanity that the human race is sometimes gripped by!”
Powers is The Futureheads’ sixth studio album and their first electric guitar release in almost a decade. Recorded and self-produced at Newcastle’s First Avenue Studio, Powers is a record that looks at the balance of power in a personal, political and relational sense and puts it to some of the most vital, invigorated material the band have made since their first steps on 2004’s self-titled debut album – the one that took Britain’s indie rock scene by storm.
