Mystery Jets – Petty Drone

Mystery Jets’ upcoming album A Billion Heartbeats was originally due last year. It was postponed however, after singer Blaine Harrison had to undergo emergency surgery. It will now be released on 3 April.

Four tracks off the album have already been issued as singles. They are now collected on the EP Petty Drone, including the previously unreleased title track, which is their new single. It’s a call to arms, thick with the melodies of ‘70s Queen and what the band describe as a kind of ‘psychedelic anger’. The song’s lyrics were inspired by the Adam Curtis film HyperNormalisation, and the modern phenomenon of surveillance capitalism: “Ostracised, de-nationalised, re-categorised… polarised, de-sensitised….”
