Glass Animals releases their new single "A Tear In Space (Airlock)" from their highly anticipated fourth studio album I Love You So F***ing Much, set to be released on July 19th via Republic Records. Alongside the release of the new song and music video, it is officially announced that Glass Animals' record-breaking global hit "Heat Waves" is now RIAA Diamond Certified, making it the 15th Diamond alternative song of all time and first Diamond alternative song by an international band.

I Love You So F***ing Much is an album about love in all its shapes and forms. "A Tear In Space (Airlock)" explores a love that is all consuming, forcing you to bend and stretch yourself around the other person to the point where you lose yourself, stretched so thin, squashed so small, you are almost invisible. It is about control and dominance and the pleasure/pain of abandoning yourself to someone else's desires. It also touches on the wider themes of scale and perspective that the album plays with-after all, what is a tear in space? So small that it is insignificant, and yet so vast to the person shedding it. From a tiny teardrop in an airlock to a vast galaxy, I Love You So F***ing Much is an expansive record with retro-futuristic production that travels in and out of the "shapelessness of love."
