We are just weeks away from the release of Garbage‘s new album Not Your Kind of People and today we get to preview another new track from the disc titled Big Bright World. The band sat down to discuss the track in a very cool EPK video (which debuted exclusively on Idolator) that features interviews with members of the band along with images that look to be from the song’s music video. Described as the most “upbeat” song on the record, Big Bright World attempts to capture the excitement the band felt getting back together after so many years apart. Check out the video below and get your first taste of Big Bright World.
With less than a month to go before the release of Garbage‘s long-awaited Not Your Kind Of People, the band have offered up a stylish black-and-white clip for “Big Bright World” where they explain how the track came to be and employ various artistic clips to give the song some cinematic flourish. “You’re mysterious, you make no sense, I love you because you’re innocent, you fell out through a hole inside the sun,” Shirley Manson sings on “Big Bright World”, which rings with some added poignancy given that Sunday is Earth Day. Get more insight to the second cut on Not Your Kind Of People by watching above. Garbage member Steve Marker explains that he was staying at apartment at Hollywood Blvd. and Vine Street in Hollywood — “The noisiest place I’ve ever been,” he notes — when he came up with the melody for “Big Bright World”. Butch Vig calls the song “maybe the most anthemic track on the record,” so needless to say, it met the rest of the band’s approval — particularly Shirley’s. “I think we were really excited as a band to get back together, and ["Big Bright World"] sort of captures the excitement of us playing together for the first time in a long time,” Manson says. Images of the sun, a rose and Manson holding up a cracked, antique-looking mirror play out in the mini-video, before we finally see the frontwoman sitting in a window, gazing through the people on a busy sidewalk and staring into a forest. Then the camera finally fades to black.
I’m sure I don’t need to tell y’all how excited I am for the release of this new Garbage album. Getting to see them live in concert 4 times in about a week (HERE, HERE, HERE and HERE) was just the right amount of awesome to get me really jazzed for the album’s release. This interview footage of the band discussing their music is really freaking cool. I hope we get to see more video like this, each one focusing on a different track from the album. It won’t be long now … all this teasing will eventually give way to a full on explosion of Garbage music. I am counting down the seconds.
