Welsh alternative rock trio The Joy Formidable have today released a brand new single entitled ‘The Hat’, the second of three to appear ahead of a UK tour that commences later this month.

“I feel like your own inner reflections can take on a sensation like being in space, alone in the gravity of your own uncertainty, drifting and off balance but aware of how beautiful and extraordinary life is,” says singer Ritzy Bryan. “This new song has that sensation of being transported but also moving forward, a nod to the new aperiodic tile that never repeats and your own vow to ‘never make the same mistake twice’.”

‘The Hat’ is the follow-up to ‘Cut Your Face’, which was issued in early August.
