NEW BLOC PARTY SONG
It appears a track from the new Bloc Party album has been leaked. While all notes say this is a 'demo', this is a very produced sounding DEMO! The track is called Song For Clay, formerly titled “Merge On The Freeway”, leaked from an April demo session and is based on the life of Clay, the central character in Brett Easton Ellis’ novel, Less Than Zero.
BlocParty.net goes on to elaborate on Clay’s character:
“[Clay is] a rich young college student who returns to his hometown of Los Angeles for the winter break. Clay subsequently becomes bored and turns to drugs and cheap thrills to keep him occupied, resulting in further boredom. This dizzying spiral of desperation takes him to relentless parties in glitzy mansions, seedy bars, and underground rock clubs as he seeks inner direction.”
I don't think the song sounds anything like what we know from Silent Alarm but is still solid GOLD in its own right.
In other Bloc Party news, Kele is said to have told London’s XFM that the new album will be called A Weekend In The City, which is consistent with his previous statements that the album will be thematically centered on life in the city. The album is still said to be slated for an early 2007 release.
