Ought are back! Fresh from signing with Merge Records, the Canadian outfit have today announced the release of third LP Room Inside the World – and shared the album’s first single alongside brand new UK tour dates.
Recorded at Brooklyn’s Rare Book Room, ‘These 3 Things’ debuts a bolder sound from Ought, whilst still holding onto that characteristically meticulous aesthetic that fans have come to love. Exploring themes of identity, connection and survival, it’s a stunning first single that promises good things from the forthcoming album.
On the video, directors Johnny Look & Scottie Cameron say: “Life can be problematic. Everything takes time and energy. We challenged ourselves to create devices of great convenience using three items. When initially testing the convenience machines without the human variable, we discovered luxury and success. However, it was sterile. The beauty only came with the unpredictable moments brought by the human element. Being human is better than looking for an easy way out.”
