  • Fontaines D.C. Premieres New Song “Favourite” on BBC Radio 1

  • Irish post-punk band Fontaines D.C., consisting of Carlos O'Connell (guitar), Conor Curley (guitar), Conor Deegan III (bass), Grian Chatten (vocals) and Tom Coll (drums), premiered a new song “Favourite” on BBC Radio 1's New Music Show with Jack Saunders.

    The song is the second single off of their upcoming fourth studio album “Romance”, following “Starburster”.
    The new album is set to be released on August 23, 2024 via XL Recordings.
    The band lead singer Grian Chatten described the song as having “this never-ending sound to it, a continuous cycle from euphoria to sadness, two worlds spinning forever.”
    The track was written by Carlos O'Connell, Conor Curley, Conor Deegan III, Grian Chatten, and Tom Coll. Produced by James Ford.
    The accompanying music video was directed by Fontaines D.C. themselves.
  • Grian Chatten told Jack Saunders about the song, “The song sounds about two years old and it's an old. I suppose all of the people in our lives in my life at least, make life meaningful and an interesting and fun. I have, I'm not very good at telling people to their face. So I think I need to write a song in order to express something.”

    He continued, “It's funny, because I was just thinking about a story of when I was a kid, I used to when I was a very young kid I used to run around the backyard with my eyes closed because I was afraid that bees would mistake my eyes for flowers and try to land on them. And I'll get some of my eyeballs. So I just kind of thought of that until the song came out.”

  • He added, “I kind of think like a 'Starburster'. There is a dystopian sort of industrial, futuristic nightmare. Then 'Favourite' is the sort of like uncovered fossil of the 50s radio station. I wanted to make songs that had the kind of contrast of joy but also kind of surrender on some sort of deathless a stuck comes with maybe the ends, I'm taking the song like 'There She Goes'.”
