1. Navigate, Navigate
Young mystics and chanters let the eternal beat run through them for twelve minutes, and rock and roll finally leaves the 20th century…
In January 2007, These New Puritans were invited to soundtrack the 2007-8 Autumn Collection for Dior Homme. Commissioned by creative director Hedi Slimane, the resulting 'Navigate, Navigate' – which ran for the full length of the 16-minute show – was composed, recorded, and produced by the band in just over a week. Singer/guitarist/producer Jack Barnett: "It's a pop song. But I cringe when ever anyone sings anything in a straightforward, meaningful way; so the lyrics are all about cyphers and codes and things like that. Before now our longest song was just over 3 minutes, this one is over 12 minutes."

Artist: These New PuritansAs their name suggests, These New Puritans are a group on a very precise mission. Hailing from around Southend-On-Sea, and consisting of Barnett, his twin brother George, Thomas Hein and Sophie Sleigh-Johnson, they have established their reputation through a series of high profile live appearances alongside the likes of The Kills and Klaxons. They first came to prominence with their 2008 debut album, Beat Pyramid. Urgent, pared down, eyes on stalks, sharp as a stick, it was hailed by the NME as demonstrating a “span of ideas and singularity of vision that simply shouldn't happen to 20 year olds. They've created their own imperfect world.”
