The song, In Your Car, will be released via Mute on 22 April and precedes the album, which – as the title suggests – will be out in June.
After last year’s teaser track, Teradactol, new song In Your Car further showcases the dramatic expansion of sound since Big Deal’s critically-acclaimed debut album Lights Out was released in 2011.
The track was born when Costelloe hummed the melody while the band cruised down the California coastline and its carefree sunshine pop perfectly evokes summer.
“That fun, road trip kind of a song doesn’t happen a lot with English rock bands because it’s just not in the culture,” explains Underwood.
Big Deal will be performing as a four-piece this May at Liverpool Sound City and YO1 Festival, with more dates to be announced shortly.
4 May – Liverpool Sound City
5 May – YO1 Festival
