The duo shared a clip to their official Twitter page, with an instrumental loop from the song playing set to footage of Sleaford Mods’ Andrew Fearn doing his trademark hand-in-pocket dance in time with it. A still photo of vocalist Jason Williamson appears opposite Fearn.

The song marks the first time the two duos have worked together. Orbital have not released a new single since 2018’s ‘The End Is Nigh’, which stemmed from their ninth studio album ‘Monsters Exist’ from the same year. They have, however, worked on several remixes – including one for DMA’S‘ ‘Life Is a Game of Changing’ last year.
Sleaford Mods, meanwhile, released their eleventh studio album ‘Spare Ribs’ in January. It featured collaborations with Billy Nomates and Amyl & The Sniffers frontwoman Amy Taylor.
In a five-star review, NME praised ‘Spare Ribs’ as Sleaford Mods’ “best album yet”.
“Williamson and Fearn unflinchingly show you life – particularly the shittier corners of it, while flashing a swift middle finger at those who create them,” it read.
