Arlo Parks Premieres New Song “Blades” on BBC Radio 1
British singer-songwriter Arlo Parks premiered a new song “Blades” along with a music video on BBC Radio 1's Future Sounds with Clara Amfo.
The song is the third single off of her upcoming sophomore album My Soft Machine, which is set to be released on May 26, 2023.
Arlo Parks wrote the song with producer Paul Epworth.
Arlo Parks said of the song, “Paul is just a wizard; he has this childlike spirit that I’ve always really loved and he brought that to ‘Blades' I wanted to make something that I can dance to, finally, because I feel like my songs don’t really have that quality in general. So, I took inspiration from bands like ESG, artists like Kaytranada, and a lot of the kind of ’70s Zambian psychedelic rock that I love.”
She continued, “I imagine this moment at a party where you see someone across the room that you haven’t seen in a while, you felt yourself growing apart, and you’re like, should I, should I not? And then you find the courage to approach them.”
