Watch: Fontaines D.C. – ‘Favourite’

Fontaines D.C. have unveiled ‘Favourite’, the second single from their highly anticipated fourth album ROMANCE – out August 23rd via XL Recordings / Remote Control. 
‘Favourite’, the new album’s gorgeous finalé, soars as a shimmering, clear-eyed love song replete with harmonies, jangling guitars, and heartfelt, ardent lyrics. It’s a song the band’s Grian Chatten describes as having “this never-ending sound to it, a continuous cycle from euphoria to sadness, two worlds spinning forever” and is destined to be a firm fan favourite.
The accompanying ‘Favourite’ music video, self-directed by the band themselves, documents a recent trip to Madrid. It’s a city Fontaines D.C. have multiple personal connections to, as the place guitarist Carlos O’Connell was born and grew up in and the city the band used as a base for their first ever tour. Cut with childhood footage of the five band members, it’s an intimate, feel-good portrait of a group on the verge of their next stratospheric leap.
