DMA’S have shared new single ‘Fading Like A Picture’, lifted from their upcoming album ‘How Many Dreams?’
According to a press release, most of ‘Fading Like A Picture’ was written by DMAS lead singer Tommy O’Dell, with guitarist Matthew Mason adding the song’s euphoric riff. “We used the middle eight from another demo as the chorus,” explained bandmate Johnny Took. “A true DMA’S collaboration.”
The single is accompanied by a music video directed by Harry Welsh. It finds the Sydney trio in an empty white studio room, which later bursts with color thanks to thermal imaging and greenscreen effects. See it below:
‘Fading Like A Picture’ is the fourth preview to be shared ahead of ‘How Many Dreams?”s March 31st release. Lead single ‘I Don’t Need To Hide’ arrived last August, followed by October’s ‘Everybody’s Saying Thursday’s The Weekend’ and last month’s ‘Olympia’.
“Our palette to [‘How Many Dreams?’] the album was much broader because we’ve learned so much since our debut”, Took explained when announcing the upcoming record. “We have listened to so much more music between then and now, which has shaped us. It felt like a first outing again. The tension was the same.”
Yesterday (January 18), DMA’S announced a venue upgrade for the upcoming London show, which now takes place at the OVO Arena Wembley on April 21. That performance is part of the band’s wider UK-wide tour, which includes stops in Glasgow, Cambridge and Manchester.
While DMA’S surprisingly released the EP ‘I Love You Unconditionally, Sure Am Going To Miss You’ in 2021, the band’s upcoming album will mark their first full-length project since ‘The Glow’ in 2020. In a four-star review, NME described that album as “a bold step forward” and “a hyper-charged record of dance and decadence.”
