Next Year

Songfacts®:

  • Two Door Cinema Club open their second album, Beacon, with this cut on which vocalist Alex Trimble bemoans being on tour away from his girl. He goes on to promise her he'll be "back home next year." The record was influenced by the months that the Irish group spent on the road touring their debut release. "We've really concentrated on capturing one certain feel or one certain moment in time," Trimble told Billboard magazine, "and making the music bring us back to that day."
  • Trimble told NME: "It was one of the first new ones we put down on the record after 'Handshake', 'Sleep Alone' and 'Settle', which were written quite a long time before that. It's a song for friends who we never see."
