NEW YORK, March 8 — Years & Years have released the first track off their highly anticipated second studio album, along with a dystopic video.
Sanctify — with its audible nod to Britney Spears — offers a first taste of the British synthpop band’s sophomore album, which comes after 2015’s critically acclaimed and Brit-nominated album Communion.
Frontman Olly Alexander said of the accompanying video, “The video for Sanctify centres around an audition against the backdrop of a future metropolis called Palo Santo. It’s the first part of a bigger jigsaw puzzle and my hope is that it confuses the hell out of people but also excites them in a mysterious and sensual way....I’m asking people to jump down the rabbit hole with me and let their imagination run free.”
