Listen to Peace’s feel-good new single ‘Happy Cars’

Peace have shared a new single called ‘Happy Cars’ – you can listen to it below.

The song serves as the first official preview of the Birmingham duo’s fourth studio album ‘Utopia’, which is set for a vinyl release on November 3 after being shared on a secret website in April (pre-order here).

Arriving today (October 25), the feel-good ‘Happy Cars’ is the first track from the upcoming record to be made widely available on streaming services. It is described as a “thrilling evolution” of Peace’s “classic sound”.

‘Utopia’ has not yet been given a date for release on streaming platforms or digital stores, meaning the vinyl edition is currently the only way to own the album in full.

During an interview with NME last month, the group shared insight into why they chose to release the LP via the cryptic website first. Frontman Harry Koisser joked that people warned him and his brother/bandmate Sam that the move would be “career suicide”.

“I just don’t see how. We can put music on Spotify whenever we want, release vinyl whenever we want,” he said.

‘Utopia’ follows on from Peace’s 2018 album ‘Kindness Is The New Rock and Roll’, and will see the two-piece go down a more experimental path than they might be known for.

“We didn’t necessarily know [we were making a Peace album when we were making it] – we just went and started doing it without knowing what it was,” Sam told NME.

Harry added: “When we were listening back to it, we were like, ‘This feels like a Peace record. We had managed to create this music that wasn’t really far off from it.”

Peace are due to embark on a UK headline tour next month. The run of dates includes a sold-out show at Heaven in London. You can see the full list of gigs below and find any remaining tickets here.
