This is a "placeholder" for the yet-to-be-released song "Dreamland" by the British band Years & Years, co-written with the Pet Shop Boys by their lead singer Olly Alexander. It's scheduled to appear on the next Years & Years album, the title and release date haven't yet been announced.
According to Alexander, the song was inspired by an amusement park named Dreamland in the coastal town of Margate in southeastern England. Its lyrics offer what he describes as "a subversive political statement," with Neil telling him that it "makes sense right now with [U.S. President Donald] Trump closing the borders." Neil encouraged him to make the lyrics even "more direct."
I'll provide additional information here as soon as it becomes available.
