Art of Doubt is the seventh studio album by Canadian indie rock band Metric, which was released on 21 September 2018. The first single, "Dark Saturday", was released on 13 July 2018, followed by "Dressed to Suppress" on 26 July, and "Now or Never Now" on 4 September. On 13 September NPR published a live stream of the album. Art of Doubt was produced by Justin Meldal-Johnsen, and recorded at EastWest Studios in Los Angeles, and at Metric's own studio, Giant Studio in Toronto.
Their latest album may be called Art of Doubt, but the only thing in doubt from album to album is proportions: synthetic to acoustic, crunch to shimmer, angst to release. Opener Dark Saturday says it outright: I change by staying the same. The point of that lyric, of course, is that staying the same can be good, and Metric, in particular, thrive on a kind of comfort-food familiarity. Metric do succumb to one trend, namely the streaming-era impulse to make albums about 18 minutes longer than they need to be. And like many long-running institutions, Metric occasionally feel called to address The Problems of Today. While their past albums have plenty of quasi-political lyrical tweaks, the world is quite a different thing in 2018 than 2015-or 2003, the year their debut Old World Underground, Where Are You Now? came out, a year to which Shaw compared the current political landscape.

Metric's New Album 'Art of Doubt' Is Here: Stream It Now. 9/21/2018 by Starr Bowenbank. The LP serves as the highly-anticipated followup to 2015's Pagans in Vegas. In celebration of the album release, the band has also dropped video for "Now or Never Now," the newest single from the record. The video for "Now or Never Now" goes against the common mood typically associated with nightclubs. Instead of an environment that is about fun, partying and excitement, Metric challenges the idea by showing frontwoman Emily Haines as a sad partygoer. Haines is left to her own devices, navigating the nightclub scenes and the early dawn of the morning by her lonesome
Art of Doubt reprises the post-punk furor of Metric’s early days" - ROLLING STONE.
Album highlight ‘Now Or Never Now’ boasts that glow of sci-fi pop prowess that lit up 2009’s under-sung cult favourite ‘Fantasies’ – the space-age approach to pop that fans of Chvrches will adore. From the menacing rumblings of ‘Dark Saturday’ to the apocalyptic disco of ‘Die Happy’, from the unhinged open-road anthemics of the title track to the wonky grunge waltz of ‘Holding Out’, Metric are fuelled by the same rush of spirit that you loved on their beloved 2006 single ‘Monster Hospital’. This time around, though, the band operates. The Big Read – Amyl and The Sniffers: It’s rough, raw and anything can happen.
