Fans having been craving new music from Years & Years, and Olly Alexander has finally indulged them.
On Tuesday (Sept. 28), Years & Years unveiled their brand-new single "Crave," a pounding, house-influenced pop track about love, sex and domination. Along with releasing the track, Years & Years also announced the release of their third studio album, Night Call, which is due Jan. 7, 2022, via Interscope Records.
In the new video for the single, viewers get a glimpse of Alexander, decked out in head-to-toe blue body makeup, surrounded by a series of fantastical beings with long, pointy ears going out of their way to seduce the singer. As the video progresses, things get significantly kinkier, as Alexander is introduced to some leather-clad individuals who eventually chain him up and start whipping him with a cat o' nine tails as he sings, "The only thing I crave is the pain from you."
