‘Mr. Motivator’ previews IDLES’ highly anticipated third album, with a barrage of positivity, twisting clichés and creating already iconic lyrics.
Frontman Joe Talbot explains “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.”
Their last record Joy Is An Act of Resistance was our Album of the Year in 2018 and featured as our sixth favourite album of the decade (right next to Brutalism)
The third album is expected this year.
