  • READ MORE: LIFE launched their new album at a kebab shop in Camden, so we came downstairs and asked, “Why?”

The single is the latest single from their new upcoming third album, “North East Coastal Town”, which will be released on August 19.

A statement describes the song as “more introspective than any track by the band to date”.

Speaking of the new version, Mez Green of the band said, “’Duck Egg Blue’ is a realistic love song. The journey of trying to navigate through each other’s feelings and emotions, the tensions of narrow-mindedness trapped in a small apartment, the details of everyday life.

“The general feeling is that no matter what, after all that is said and done, we love each other and are here for each other.”

The single is also accompanied by a new video whose visual is taken from bassist Lydia Palmeria and her girlfriend painting their bedroom.

Speaking of which, the band added: Duck Egg Blue’s video is a mix of painting and feeling, love and frustration, and the process of turning a house into a house.

Speaking about their new album, Green previously said: “Hull and its surroundings run through our DNA and have shaped us, resisted us, empowered us, embraced us and made us feel accepted.

“’North East Coastal Town’ is our love letter to the city. The album is an ode to kinship and relationship with its musical and lyrical backbone which selects the themes of love, desire, beauty, horror, chaos, pride and above all sense of belonging.
