Today, June 12th, marks the U.S. release of Synthetica (MMI/MOM+POP), Metric’s fifth full-length studio album. Guitarist and album producer, Jimmy Shaw, describes Synthetica’s enthralling balance of futuristic and organic sound on the new record as “[…] the culmination of everything we’ve done. We’ve always had a sound in our heads that we hoped to realize. We finally heard it coming back out of the speakers this time.”
The music video for Synthetica’s lead single, “Youth Without Youth,” also premieres today on MTV.com. Directed by Justin Broadbent, the “Youth Without Youth” video blends the old with the new through imagery of themes present throughout Synthetica while simultaneously and subtly referencing moments throughout Metric’s career.
