Video of the week: Feeder 'Hey You'






Feeder have released 'Hey You', the latest single from their forthcoming double album Black / Red which is set for release next Friday, 5th April 2024 on Big Teeth Music via Townsend Music / Absolute Label Services. Black / Red completes a trilogy of albums joined to 2022’s UK Top 5 album Torpedo and follows a run of new singles that have catalogued roller-coaster rides of self-discovery, and reasoned with how to bridge the void when love feels far away. 'Hey You' hits its highs as a contemplative, swelling and triumphant new offering from the double album project.

Songs across Black / Red carry with them the same sense of wide-open space, freedom and possibility, aligned with an optimistic energy that first lit the fuse for [2022 album] Torpedo. Cohesive and connected rather than a concept, Black / Red is a continuation of Torpedo’s conversation but at the same time a full stop on a prolific songwriting period that encapsulates a very specific moment in time for the band. Feeder’s first ever double album became the perfect way for them to not only realise what these songs mean together in the present day, but also to show the breadth of a sound they’ve honed across the decades, taking in muscular riffs, sky-scraping melodies and heartfelt sentiment.

Talking about the new album, vocalist, guitarist and writer Grant Nicholas says: “I really wanted the album to be split in two parts for the listener, CD1 and CD2, black and red rather than be one long player, almost like a musical production with an interval. Making it was a very creative time for me as a writer and a real labour of love. Making the Black / Red album for me personally was a musical pilgrimage and I feel the end result is undeniable Feeder.”
