Boys Noize drops new single ‘XTC’

The wait is gradually drawing to a close for Boys Noize fans. On October 2, Alex Ridha will drop Out Of The Black, his first album since 2009’s Power. But while it might yet be a couple of months before we get the full album, Ridha’s just given us the first single from album number three.

The German electro gun uploaded XTC to his Soundcloud last night: a driving, bass-infused banger and a promising sign of what’s to come on the rest of the album. The good news is that we’ll be able to download XTC when it’s released on August 6 – that’s next Monday. The first single follows a preview of album track What You Want, which was unveiled through Rolling Stone last week and described by Ridha as a return to his “raw and rough sound”. Check out XTC below.
