Tokyo Police Club share video for previously unreleased fan favourite ‘Top 5’

Tokyo Police Club have shared a video for their previously unreleased, long-time fan-favourite, “Top 5.”

The track comes from their Champ-era. That album was recently issued for the first time on vinyl, and got an expanded digital version in March. “Top 5” comes accompanied by a video that offers a behind-the-scenes look at the recording process.

“‘Top 5’ is the closest thing we have to a ‘much sought after fan favourite unreleased track,'” guitarist and keyboardist Graham Wright explains. “Ever since we did it on Daytrotter way back when, people have been asking for an official release, but even though it’s been floating around since before ‘Elephant Shell’ we never recorded it properly!”

Watch the video for “Top 5” below.

Wright continues:

“For a long time, we assumed that ship had sailed – our style and approach had evolved, and it can feel surprisingly hard to convincingly recapture an old vibe! But we found ourselves with some studio time recently, and we decided to try the novel approach of ‘playing the song like we wrote it.’ Lo and behold, there it was! It had been waiting for us the whole time, and we thank it for its patience. It ended up being the best of both worlds – our old 2010s was still there, preserved in amber, and we got to use all the new tricks we’ve learned since then too. 10 years of Tokyo Police Club in one bite sized, 3-minute package!”
