Fontaines D.C. have announced their third album, Skinty Fia, to be released on 22nd April on Partisan Records. News of the album comes with the release of its first single, ‘Jackie Down The Line’ – replete with a video directed by Hugh Mulhern and starring multidisciplinary artist, MC, dancer, and choreographer, Blackhaine. The band will give ‘Jackie Down The Line’ its live performance debut on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon on Wednesday 12th January.

Musically, ‘Jackie Down The Line’ nods to the acoustic work of The Jam, while the lead guitar riffs are reminiscent of Johnny Marr throughout. There is of course no mistaking Grian Chatten’s distinctive drawl which ties it all together.

‘Skinty Fia’ is an Irish phrase which translates as “the damnation of the deer” and the album’s cover art features a deer, plucked from its natural habitat and deposited in the hallway of a home, illuminated by an artificial red glow. The album which contains 10-tracks sees the group working once again with producer Dan Carey.
