Must-listen: Declan McKenna's new song 'British Bombs'.

Declan McKenna returns today with new song 'British Bombs' - the first new single since the release of his debut album 'What Do You Think About The Car?' - produced by James Ford, and which McKenna is donating all profits made from to charity.

About his new song, McKenna says: "'British Bombs' is a tune I wrote about the hypocrisy of the British arms trade and the weapons convention in London. I think too often it’s implied that matters in the world are too complex to not end up with war, or to not possess and sell weapons, and I just think it is pure bullshit. Not only do we still engage in wars far away from our homes, which settle nothing and fuel extremism in the aftermath, we sell weapons to other countries full well knowing where they end up. I wanted to write a song that was outright against war, in any form. Violence breeds violence and I just don’t think the world is too complex to set a peaceful precedent, but it seems the business of war is what keeps happening. To say it’s a shame feels like a huge understatement."
