English experimental art-rockers These New Puritans are releasing their first album in six years next month via BMG. Titled Inside the Rose, the record follows 2013’s Field of Reeds. The band shared the lead single off the album, “Into the Fire,” back in November and the record’s title track a few weeks ago. Today, they’ve unveiled the third single off the album, “Anti-Gravity,” an ominously hypnotic slow-burner.

The song is inspired by the work of William Blake: "The imagination is not a state, it is human existence itself,” with Jack Barnett, one half of the brother duo, explaining that "Anti-Gravity" is about "a person or moment suspending your disbelief and bending the rules of the world.” Barnett's other half, George Barnett, adds, "Irony won't save you from anything."

Inside the Rose is out March 22. Watch the lyric video for “Anti-Gravity” below.
