The Presets are back to their slamming, party-first sound, heralded by their first new song in nearly four years, “Do What You Want”.
Currently burning up airwaves in their native Australia, the band themselves are flamboyantly front and centre in the Kris Moyes-directed video, as premiered on Billboard.com overnight. Check it out HERE.
Speaking with Billboard.com, Julian said, “Kris Moyes directed two of our all-time favorite Presets videos for ‘Are You The One?’ and ‘My People’, so it seemed natural to go back and ask him to throw something together for our new song ‘Do What You Want’. Naturally, he did not disappoint. A mind-melting, flashback inducing glory hole of dreams, screams and a whole lotta cream. Now our pleasure is your pleasure. Please consider.”
Kris Moyes concurs, “If the music video we made for Are You The One? was a newborn child, the music video for Do What You Want is the troubled teen. It’s a turbo charged mental melt down, a visual tantrum, albeit super silly and fun, of course! From the very first conversation we were all on the same page about wanting to make something cool and to remind fans and friends of why we all love The Presets. Like all our work, this one comes from the heart. I hope you love it as much as we loved making it.”
A call-to-arm for the holidays, this relentless party starter was written and produced by The Presets, with distinctive cover art from long-time collaborator Jonathan Zawada who has also worked with Flume over recent years.
Looking ahead to 2018, The Presets will release their first new album in 4 years which they’ve teased as “the best record they’ve made.”
