Watch Fontaines D.C. Perform Recent Single ‘Favourite’ at Glastonbury

Must read

The BBC has shared a video of Fontaines D.C. showcasing their latest single, “Favourite,” at Glastonbury last weekend. The group dropped the shimmering love song in June along with a self-directed music video for the track, which documented a recent trip to Madrid.

In the clip, the band can be seen during their headlining set on the Park Stage, during which they performed both older tracks and songs from their forthcoming LP, Romance, out Aug. 23 via XL Recordings.

Fontaines D.C. previously debuted “Favourite” live at a show at the Brooklyn Warsaw in April. Lead singer Grian Chatten described the track in a statement as having “this never-ending sound to it, a continuous cycle from euphoria to sadness, two worlds spinning forever.”

The group announced Romance, their fourth album, with single “Starburster” in April. The funky, disco-rock track chronicles a panic attack Chatten suffered in a London tube station.

The quintet spent a month writing Romance and nearly another month in a North London studio doing pre-production. The band recorded it with producer James Ford in a Paris chateau over another month. Bassist Conor Deegan III said they decided on the title because of their penchant for romanticization.

“We’ve always had this sense of idealism and romance,” he said in a statement. “Each album gets further away from observing that through the lens of Ireland, as directly as Dogrel. The second album [A Hero’s Death] is about that detachment, and the third [Skinty Fia] is about Irishness dislocated in the diaspora. Now we look to where and what else there is to be romantic about.”


“We say things on this record we’ve wanted to say for a long time,” Chatten added. “I never feel like it’s over, but it’s nice to feel lighter.” 

Fontaines D.C. are on the road throughout the summer, performing at various music festivals around the world. In August, they will at Reading and Leeds in the U.K.
