Ahead of the release of their fourth album ‘Dead Club City’ next week, Nothing But Thieves have shared the final track before release with song ‘Keeping You Around’, which follows recent singles ‘Welcome to the DCC’ and ‘Overcome’
With socially insightful lyrics and an adept ability to progress their sound and experiment between the diverse genres that shape them as a band, Nothing But Thieves showcased their more sonically leftfield sound and made a statement return with ‘Welcome to the DCC’, marking an innovative new chapter with their fourth record ‘Dead Club City’, released next week on 30th June via RCA/Sony Music. ‘Welcome to the DCC’ was A-List on Radio 1 and Radio X and has also become the band’s biggest ever airplay track to date. Recent single and epic pop track ‘Overcome’ is currently B-List on Radio 1 and the band recently performed both tracks at Radio 1’s Big Weekend in Dundee.

New instant grat track ‘Keeping You Around’ gives the final glimpse into ‘Dead Club City’ ahead of release next week. A trip-hop ballad with a smooth melody that showcases a more reserved R&B tinged vocal for lead singer Conor, it reveals a more experimental side to Nothing But Thieves whilst still being distinctly them. The band say;
“’Keeping You Around’ is the first turning point people will hear about Dead Club City. Up until now, it’s been the perfect life and a change to follow. Not for everyone.”
“Within the concept, the song follows the same characters as ‘Overcome’ and what happens once they reach the city. In general, it’s about an outside force pulling at you, or pulling you apart. Newer isn’t always better and old doesn’t mean dead.”
 ‘Tell me how a modern human should be. It’s so easy. You’re so pretty when you lie to me’ (Keeping You Around)
Through their forthcoming 11-track album, the band showcase their city-sized members only club ‘Dead Club City’. The album’s tracklist and overall narrative is formed by different characters and story arcs from in and around the city. Is it a shared consciousness? Another planet? The next corporate wasteland? Heaven? Or somewhere else? Creatively engineered by the band themselves, the stories, themes and connections across ‘Dead Club City’ have been revealed in the lead-up to the album through songs, videos and artwork.

Using the club as a focal point, it is easy to imagine the real-world meaning behind Dead Club City. Themes such as advertisement, unity, internet culture, the music industry, ageing and politics, as well as escapism and change are highlighted by the alienation or privilege of a members only club. The album is available to pre-order now – welcome to ‘Dead Club City’ and the new era of Nothing But Thieves.
