Bloc Party is one of those bands that even right after they’ve released a new album, you’re already clamoring for more music. The English group released their fifth album, Hymns, this past January, which seems like ages ago. Thankfully, the band has heard our pleas, and have released a new single, entitled “Stunt Queen.”

True to its name, “Stunt Queen” will probably make you want to go out and do some big-ass stunts. The song drives along at a solid clip with significant amounts of energy and a simple riff that works wonders under Kele Okereke’s breakneck vocals. “I’ve got friends in high places / I know things you don’t know,” Okereke informs us during the song’s hook. Okereke also released the following statement about the song:

“‘Stunt Queen’ has its genesis in an idea that dates back to the Australian tour we did at the start of 2016. It was an idea that we worked on at sound checks and was one of the first ideas to come along after [new band members] Justin [Harris] and Louise [Bartle] joined the band. Playing the Hollywood Bowl feels like a significant milestone for the band, and we wanted to mark it with a new release. We’re excited to be playing our biggest ever headline gig in the U.S. and releasing new material in the same week.”
