Skunk Anansie Stream New Single – “What You Do For Love”

Legendary UK Rock band Skunk Anansie have shared a brand new single! ‘What You Do For Love’ had its world exclusive first play on Jo Whiley’s BBC Radio 2 show last night. The track is heavy, catchy and political, all the things SA have been known for in 25 years. ‘What You Do For Love’ is the first new music from the band since 2016’s Anarchytecture album and comes a week after they started their huge European headline tour accompanied by Queen Zee and Black Orchard Empire on support., which celebrates the release of the 25LIVE@25 album earlier this year.

Lead singer Skin comments: “The hardest songs to write are political ones which is why we always try to avoid them. They’re supposed to just instantaneously spill out of you due to pure vexation, or they sound insincere and you fall into tired old clichés. This is one of those moments of rage! Love always seems to be the reason why people do hateful things, which I’ve never been able to understand.”
