‘Think I Need It Too’ is the brilliant new single from the mighty Echo & The Bunnymen, and the first release from their forthcoming album ‘The Fountain’. It’s a joyous, uplifting, utterly infectious slice of luscious pop and Mac’s voice sounds stronger than ever.
“I’m just a better writer and better singer these days,” he says. “My voice has got more… honest.” The B side will be a new track entitled ‘November’. The single’s widescreen, crystalline sound is the work of Scottish producer John McLaughlin, who produced the whole album, and whose credits may come as a surprise to some Bunnymen fans. “He’s done work with Busted and Five, who I loved!” smiles Mac. “I just became really good friends with him. I really wanted a big, solid undertow beneath the lyrics.
The single debuted Thursday on the BBC’s Channel6 Roundtable.
