Bombay Bicycle Club reveal “I Want To Be Your Only Pet” Song

NEW ALBUM MY BIG DAY COMING OCTOBER 20

FEATURING GUEST APPEARANCES FROM  DAMON ALBARN, JAY SOM, HOLLY HUMBERSTONE, NILÜFER YANYA, AND SPECIAL GUEST

August 23, 2023—British guitar band Bombay Bicycle Club are premiering “I Want To Be Your Only Pet,” the latest track from their forthcoming sixth studio album, My Big Day, due October 20 via AWAL. It’s a feverish, off-kilter whirlwind that builds harmonic tension with frenzied vocals, and culminates in an explosive hook that will undoubtedly thrive in the band’s live set. 

Damon Albarn, Jay Som, Holly Humberstone and Nilüfer Yanya all lend their voices across the course of the record, with a fifth special guest releasing a song with the band later this fall.

Listen to the single, “My Big Day” that Brooklyn Vegan calls “the kind of sweet-yet-off-kilter indie pop that sounds like no other band in the world” HERE / watch the video HERE

Listen to “Diving” feat. Holly Humberstone that Atwood Magazine praises as “nothing short of spectacular” HERE / watch the video HERE

Jack sits on both sides of the glass for the duration of the record, having previously produced their fourth album So Long, See You Tomorrow, and co-production with John Congleton for 2020’s Everything Else Has Gone Wrong. Additional production comes from Paul Epworth on the track Heaven and Ben Allen who co-produces Turn The World On—the band previously worked with Allen on their hit single “Shuffle” back in 2011.

The record was mixed by Dave Fridmann (renowned for his work with The Flaming Lips, Mercury Rev, MGMT, HAIM).

The album is available for pre-order HERE.

Of the song, vocalist/guitarist Jack Steadman, says, I was just playing around with guitar sounds at soundcheck, and started playing this riff. Jamie [MacColl, guitarist] must have heard something in it because he got out his phone and started recording. For the next few months he would constantly text me to ask ‘have you written a song around that riff yet?’ So finally I did to stop him harassing me. To me it sounds like if Abbey Road era Beatles had a love child with Rated R era Queens of the Stone Age.”
