IDLES share new single “Mr. Motivator,” tease third album
IDLES are working on their third album and while details of that have not been revealed, the band have just shared a new single, Mr. Motivator." The song references Kathleen Hanna and the group's signature sloganeering. "How'd you like them cliches?" asks frontman Joe Talbot. The video for the song is literally a motivator for a bunch of people doing calisthenics in isolation. Says Talbot, "We want to start this journey with a means to not only encapsulate the album’s sentiment, but to encourage our audience to dance like no one is watching and plough through these dark times with a two tonne machete of a song and the most beautiful community of scumbags ever assembled. Let’s go. All is love.” Watch below and stay tuned for more on IDLES' new album.
