Years & Years Release Stream Of New Single 'Desire' [Listen]

Due out on November 23rd 2014 through Polydor Records London based electro-pop Years & Years return with their latest single 'Desire'; a track born out of the 90s, but with a modern dance and vocal twist that is Years & Years' freshest and boldest statement to date.
 
Picking up perfectly from where previous single 'Take Shelter' left off and retaining the dancehall element of their sound, 'Desire' sees Years & Years steps things up a gear with an anthemic chorus and finds the trio at their most impressive yet.
 
The track sees Olly Alexander reaching new vocal levels, whilst Emre and Mikey provide a backbone and structure that recalls moments of Chicago House, spliced with pop-tinged, R&B production as Alexander explains: "We started writing the chorus first, which isn't usually how we write, as "desire" became the hook and statement. The track reminded us of those big 90s house tunes, which we took a lot of inspiration from, including Chicago house, so we wanted to keep that same energy and pace throughout."
