Declan McKenna Releases New Song “Elevator Hum”
British singer-songwriter Declan McKenna released the third single called “Elevator Hum” from his upcoming third studio album “What Happened to the Beach?” on December 1, 2023.
The song follows up “Sympathy” and “Nothing Works”.
The track was written by Declan McKenna, and Gianluca Buccellati, who also produced it.
The accompanying music video was directed by Reuben Bastienne-Lewis.
Declan McKenna said of the song, “Elevator Hum was a tune that came in the latter stages of my first trip to LA working on the album with Luca. He threw the chords down and the riff fell into my hands. It’s a song that felt like it captured some nostalgic essence of friendship as we built a relationship through creating music together. The freedom and playfulness of the lyrics, and the gentle but fun glide of the track, take me back to being a kid in a way.”
- The new album comprises a 12-track, produced by Gianluca Buccellati, and is set to be released on February 9, 2024.
It is his first album in four years since the 2020 album “Zeros”.
Declan McKenna said of the album, “In the past few years there has been a bit of weight behind making music. I wanted to open up and not worry about things so much. I was putting a lot of pressure on myself in the past when I just needed to drop the intensity a bit and have some fun.”
He added, “If every song features a lyrical statement then it loses some of its impact, too. I haven't let go of that aspect of myself but I don't want to live out that style forever.”
