Years And Years Premiere New Single, â€˜If Youâ€™re Over Meâ€™
Years & Years have premiered â€˜If Youâ€™re Over Meâ€™, the new single from highly anticipated second album â€˜Palo Santoâ€™. Teased by acclaimed comeback track â€˜Sanctifyâ€™, this follows Years & Yearsâ€™ debut album â€˜Communionâ€™, which reached number 1 in the UK, was nominated for 5 BRIT Awards, and sold over 1.5 million copies. Its ambitious follow-up, â€˜Palo Santoâ€™, was announced recently with a trailer for the bandâ€™s short film of the same name, narrated by the legendary Judi Dench (look out for the full thing coming soon). Years & Years have additionally confirmed plans to launch the record live at a Palo Santo party at Londonâ€™s Roundhouse on July 10th.
Premiering today, â€˜If Youâ€™re Over Meâ€™ is a glorious window into the unique world of â€˜Palo Santoâ€™, though its euphoric melodies and effortlessly infectious refrain conceals a more melancholic, universal truth (as Olly explains). â€œThis is a song about trying to stay friends with an ex. Spoiler alert – it doesn’t often work. In fact, in my experience, the relationship often ends up ruined.Â â€˜If You’re Over Meâ€™Â is about the emotional torture that ensues – meeting up and making out, then breaking up all over again, then making out some more.â€
