Years & Years' debut album is out soon. If you can't wait that long, they've unveiled a new song called 'Gold' that should calm your craving. They debuted the track live at the O2 in Shepherd's Bush last week and the audience ate it up. It's all thunderous drums and synths – just the right balance of energetic and moody.

The track joins the canon of great 'Gold' songs like Prince's underrated 1995 song. (You can listen to a cover here, but Prince keeps taking the original down from YouTube, the miserable sod.)

The band will release the music video for 'Foundation' on Monday (22 June). Communion is expected for release on 10 July.
