Broken Bells have announced that they will release their new album 'After The Disco' next year.

The brand new studio album will be released in January 2014 and will be the follow up to duo's debut album, released in 2010. 'Broken Bells' featured the singles 'The High Road' and 'The Ghost Inside'. The duo, comprised of producer Danger Mouse and The Shins' frontman James Mercer, have posted a teaser trailer for the album, which you can see below now.

Broken Bells also released a four-track collection, called 'Meyrin Fields', in March 2011. Speaking in 2010 about recording the second album, James Mercer said: "We need to do another record, for sure, because we've got these songs we need to put out. We've got these songs that aren't B-side-type stuff, definitely ones we want on a record, and we enjoy this. It's fun." He added: "I think [Danger Mouse] enjoys it, too. It's so enjoyable. It's like a vacation – although I don't want my wife to know that! We definitely will keep working together."

Since releasing Broken Bells EP in 2011, James Mercer returned to The Shins for their 2012 album 'Port Of Morrow' while Danger Mouse has worked with The Black Keys, Norah Jones and Electric Guest.
