Skindred Release New Summer Anthem ‘L.O.V.E (Smile Please)’

Skindred have released new, summer-ready track ‘L.O.V.E (Smile Please)’.

Taken from the band’s forthcoming album ‘Smile’, set for release on August 04, the track arrives with a brightly-coloured, puppet-filled video.

Check out the new tune via its video below.

Speaking of the new song, frontman Benji Webbe has described how it brings back memories for him and the band, saying: 

“Listening to this track, the first thing I think about is being in [drummer Arya Goggin’s] van in the early 2000s, being paid £50 and having to wait for the promoter to go to the cashpoint to get it. And we’re still here today, doing what we do, because we love it.”

Their new track follows the release of ‘If I Could’ in April. 

Skindred will also be carrying their new upbeat anthem into the summer, which will include a slot at Glastonbury.
