These New Puritans - Hidden: Wikipedia Album Entry
Hidden is the second studio album by British art rock band These New Puritans. Produced by frontman Jack Barnett and former Bark Psychosis leader Graham Sutton, it was released on 18 January 2010 in the United Kingdom by Angular Recording Corporation and in the rest of the world by Domino Records.
