DECLAN MCKENNA ANNOUNCES DEBUT ALBUM “WHAT DO YOU THINK ABOUT THE CAR?” OUT JULY 21 VIA COLUMBIA RECORDS

18 year old alternative, singer/songwriter and socially conscious artist, Declan McKenna will release his debut album What Do You Think About The Car? on July 21 via Columbia Records. The album is available for pre-order digitally here: http://smarturl.it/CarDL. Fans can pre-order the physical album here: http://smarturl.it/DeclanShop.

Declan will spend this summer touring the UK and will head to the US in August for Lollapalooza and various headlining dates including New York, Chicago and Boston. Tickets will go on sale Friday, June 16 at 10AM ET. See full list of dates below.

Declan releases his brand new single “Humongous,” which premiered on SiriusXM’s Alt Nation. He also unveiled the official video for the single. Watch the Taz Tron Delix directed video here: http://smarturl.it/HumongousVideo.

“This was the last song I wrote for the record, not to pick a favourite child, but I think this might be. Definitely a step in the direction I’m heading in,” says Declan. “I love big powerful choruses that you can just scream and I wanted this to be one of those.”

What Do You Think About The Car? is a follow up to Declan’s EP Liar which was released last May. The full-length album was recorded in London and LA alongside renowned producer James Ford of Simian Mobile Disco (Depeche Mode, Arctic Monkeys). The song “Listen To Your Friends” was produced by Rostam Batmanglij of Vampire Weekend; the track, “Paracetamol” was produced by Neil Comber; and “Brazil” was produced by Max Marlow. Declan, an adept songwriter and multi-instrumentalist wrote all of the songs and co-wrote “Listen To Your Friends” on the 11-track LP. See below for full tracklist.
