Declan McKenna continues his rise with new track

Tipped for big things in 2017, Declan McKenna has released a new track ahead of supporting Cage The Elephant.

17 year old Declan McKenna can now add the “Hottest Record In The World” to his repertoire. BBC Radio 1 gave new track, The Kids Don’t Wanna Come Home, the accolade ahead of his support slot for Cage The Elephant later this month.

“It’s generally about the frustrations of being a young person in the modern world,” he said of the track. “There’s a lot of scary things going on that people are concerned about it’s about finding hope and looking towards the future.”

He’ll also be following his support slot with a headline UK tour, so 2017 is looking more and more like his year.
