Years & Years - Sanctify (Official Video)

Years & Years are one of the UK's biggest acts. Just one LP into their careers and they've already topped both the singles and the albums charts here, racked up multiple Platinum certifications and played at some of the world's most renowned festivals.

After a short break, the 'King' hitmakers are back with new music. 'Sanctify', their new single, is out today and it's incredible.

Not only that but the future hit also comes with a music video that rivals the band's best visuals. Consider us overwhelmed.

'Sanctify' itself is a rousing number that takes Years & Years' signature dance-pop sound into new and exciting realms. Percussion-heavy verses explode into a euphoric chorus that uses religious metaphors to describe sex, lust and love. It's glorious.

Even more exciting is its video. Set in a dystopian world, Olly plays a human captured by and forced to entertain androids.

That's not all though. The clip is titled 'Sanctify: Part I' which means that we have one or multiple parts to look forward to.

The boys began teasing their new music with a variety of mysterious video clips last month. Then, on Friday, they unveiled the name 'Sanctify', its art and release date, before confirming this morning that it would premiere on Radio 1 at 19:30 tonight.

Annie Mac debuted it as her 'Hottest Record' and the band also went live on Instagram answering fan questions about 'Sanctify' and the new album that they've all been working on.

The 'Desire' stars' sophomore LP is due out this year and we cannot wait to hear it.

Years & Years are one of our favourite bands. It feels so good to have them back. This article originally appeared in in MTV UK
