London-based Many Things have today dropped new single ‘77’ and announced their debut 11-track LP “Burn Together” will be released 4 September via Dew Process/Universal Music Australia.
‘77’ gets its title “from the empty bank in the drum machine where I punched in the initial beat” says Michael. “I was really into numerology at the time so I felt like it ought to stay. I felt the organ riff was ‘hype’ like Missy Elliot’s ‘We Run This’. Me and my $40 drum machine. The beat was somewhat improved when Macks picked up his drumsticks.”
The single is the second off their much-anticipated debut album “Burn Together” out 4 September, following the disco anthem ‘Holy Fire’. “Burn Together” follows last year’s ‘What We Are’ and also features hits ‘Chains’ – selected as Zane Lowe’s ‘Next Hype’; ‘What We Are’ and ‘Dear One’.
Many Things have spent the past couple of years recording the album between the UK, Germany and Australia, whilst releasing a series of killer singles and EP’s and playing their energetic, inspiring and often euphoric live shows. The band have been stirring up a groundswell of hype ever since their London genesis. Their short existence has already seen them championed by the likes of NME, Clash and Radio One.
