Nottingham outfit Blondes got an early start on the weekend Thursday with their enchanting new single "Beautiful World."

The wonderful new track is out now along with an accompanying video directed by James Slater and Matthew Dolan, with animation by Dolan. It's a preview of the band's upcoming In Separation EP, which is out July 14.

"'Beautiful World' feels like our first proper pop song," says Alex of Blondes. 'It's my favourite that we've written so far. It's about our relationship with our environment and each other. We wrote it to speak not just for ourselves but to anyone that finds themselves looking around at our world and wondering just how we've become so disconnected from one another and the planet. We hope you like it."
