The track is lifted from their new album ‘Dear Scott’, which is due for release on May 27, via Modern Sky UK.

The follow-up to 2017’s ‘Adiós Señor Pussycat’ has been produced by Bill Ryder-Jones.

The title refers to a postcard F. Scott Fitzgerald, addressed to himself upon checking in at Hollywood’s infamous Golden Age retreat, The Garden Of Allah Hotel.

“I’m fascinated with the early Hollywood studio system and the more I got to find out about the hotel, the more I realised how much the lyrical content was intertwined with it,” Head recently told Uncut.

“Stravinsky was there, arguing with Harpo Marx – if you’re a writer that’s gold! F Scott Fitzgerald stayed there when he was sober, but I think he struggled as it was a den of debauchery.”

He is also due to hit the road for a UK tour with The Red Elastic Band later this summer, kicking off at Leeds Brudenell Social Club on June 1 before wrapping on June 11 at London’s O2 Shepherds Bush Empire. Tickets for the shows can be purchased here.
