Real Estate Release New Single "Flowers"

Real Estate have shared a final pre-release taste of their upcoming album Daniel in the form of the song “Flowers,” which is accompanied by an animated video directed by Magnus Carlsson who also created Radiohead’s “Paranoid Android” video. In it, band members assist singer Martin Courtney through a difficult physical transformation, which yields a sparkling gem of a song. 

“For me, the greatest animated music video of all time is Magnus Carlsson’s iconic ‘Paranoid Android’ video for Radiohead,” Martin says of the video. “It looked like nothing else on MTV in 1997. So when we decided to do an animated video for our next single, that was at the top of the mood board. Let’s make something like the ‘Paranoid Android’ video. It didn’t even occur to us that we could actually ask Magnus Carlsson himself to make a video for our song, or that he would actually do it, or that it would end up just as weird and beautiful as we could have imagined. Big thanks to the legend Mr. Carlsson for being up for working with us.” 

“This song is the closest Real Estate will ever get to like a Shania Twain style country rocker,” the band says of the track. “We keep saying we didn’t go to Nashville to make a country record - we didn’t - but then we put out shit like this. Who cares though this song rocks. Check out that guitar solo.”


Real Estate Daniel

Album | 23rd February 2024

Real Estate’s sixth full-length album Daniel was recorded in an ebullient nine-day spree at RCA Studio A, in Nashville with GRAMMY-winning producer and songwriter Daniel Tashian (Kacey Musgraves). In 11 compulsively tuneful songs, they connect the uninhibited wonder of their earliest work with the earned perspective of adulthood. 

Several days into recording, all five members of Real Estate were discussing album titles when someone suggested “Daniel,” simply because it seemed funny to bestow a human name upon a record. Was it for Daniel Tashian? Maybe. Was it a nod to The Replacements’ Tim? Possibly. Was it the sign of a band that has now been around long enough to take its music seriously without taking itself or its perception too seriously? Absolutely.
