Listen to Editors’ pulsating new single ‘Frankenstein’

Editors. Are. Back.

Editors have today unveiled anthem-in-waiting ‘Frankenstein’ – out now via Play It Again Sam. The kinetically crackling track, described by frontman Tom Smith as “a song of joy and escapism – a cartoon song for the freaks, the different and for the night”, comes ahead of a summer filled with festival performances across Europe, and sees the band continue their dazzlingly prolific, recent creative streak.

‘Frankenstein’ sees Editors reunite with Jacknife Lee (U2, The Killers, Two Door Cinema Club). Lee previously took the reigns for the band’s no.1 debuting ‘An End Has A Start’ – an album which went on to be platinum and one of the biggest selling albums of the year.

With its eerie intro, 4×4 beat and dramatic, distorted vocals, it explodes into the kind of massive chorus Editors have become synonymous with since they burst onto the scene in 2005. A call to the dancefloor, frontman Tom Smith’s refrain of “it goes off” couldn’t be more fitting.
