Example's new solo album is due for release later this year (2014). Meanwhile, Klaxons will release their third album 'Love Frequency' on June 2. It was recorded over a period of three years with producers including LCD Soundsystem's James Murphy, Tom Rowlands of the Chemical Brothers, DJ/producer Erol Alkan and electro duo Gorgon City.
Speaking about the album, bassist Jamie Reynolds said: “We have arrived. On the first two albums, we were taking off and this one is us flying. We are there.” Talking to NME earlier this year, Reynolds described the sound of the album as "classy and euphoric", saying: "It covers leftfield electronica and pop. It's where we always said we were gonna place ourselves - it just took us a while to learn how to get there."
Example was recently named as the third and final headline act for Kendal Calling 2014. The singer will close this year's event, which will take place between August 1-3. He joins previously confirmed headliners Frank Turner and Suede on the line-up.
