London electro-rockers The Big Pink have made a new track available to listen to this morning. Stay Gold , lead single from the forthcoming LP ‘Future This’, is a surging wave of distorted energy, with a crackling undercurrent of muted riffs and an irrepressible chorus.

The track was apparently born from the dual inspiration of a Stanley Kubrick article in a late 1960s issue of Playboy , and Robert Frost’s Pulitzer Prize winning poem Nothing Gold Can Stay. If you’ve never read either of these works, then hit play on the song below, which will undoubtedly give you an accurate impression of both.

4AD will release ‘Future This’ in January 2012
