Just a little earlier today Zane Lowe premiered “Strong” on his BBC Radio 1 show, naming it his “hottest record in the world.” London Grammar’s┬áhaunting new song sees the band living up to, and surpassing, the early hype caused by the wonderful “Hey Now” and the heartfelt “Wasting My Young Years,” with slow-paced verses giving way to a powerful, lung-bursting chorus.

“Strong” will be released as a single on September 1, and will feature on London Grammar’s forthcoming debut album.
