Blossoms have today revealed their brand-new single Care For and its accompanying video. The video is directed by Edwin Burdis, Arctic Monkeys’ former Creative Director who worked on the band’s Tranquility Base Hotel & Casino and AM albums. Care For, produced by James Skelly and Rich Turvey, is the first new music from Blossoms since their double A-side Christmas single Christmas Eve (Soul Purpose)/It’s Going To Be A Cold Winter, released in 2020.
Speaking about Care For, Tom Ogden of Blossoms says:
‘I spent a lot of lockdown listening to The Style Council, Diana Ross, John & Yoko’s Double Fantasy & Billy Ocean. In my head, they all come together on this tune, to help create the ultimate end of the evening, wedding disco dance’.
