“The third album is really good,” bassist Conor Deegan III told NME. “We all thought the songs were quite poppy. We thought we’d got this sound that was finally the sound that we wanted to get across the songs, which we thought was quite poppy.

“We showed them to our manager, and he said, ‘Lads, this is the darkest shit you’ve ever written!’ And we were like, ‘What? What are you talking about? This bass melody is catchy, this vocal melody is catchy’. He was just like, ‘No, this is extremely dark’. So there you go!”

This afternoon (January 7) Fontaines D.C. shared a link to a video for what appears to be a new single titled ‘Skinty Fia’.

The track is set to premiere on YouTube on Tuesday (January 11), with a time set for 6pm.

Back in October, Fontaines debuted a new song titled ‘I Love You’ during their headline show at London’s Alexandra Palace.
