Foster The People have said that their new album, 'Supermodel' - which is due out on March 18 - is "guitar-driven".

Speaking inside this week's NME, which is on newsstands or available digitally now, frontman Mark Foster said the album was recorded with producer Paul Epworth in a riad studio in Morocco as well as in Los Angeles.

"This record is very guitar-driven," said Foster. "I haven't played this much guitar in a long time." The album includes the songs 'Coming Of Age' - which you can hear below, 'Best Friends' and 'Beginners Guide To Destroying The Moon'.

The band's second LP follows their debut 'Torches', which was released in 2011. In terms of lyrical themes on the record, Foster explained to NME: "One of the biggest themes is consumerism and the ugly side of capitalism".

The 'Supermodel' tracklisting is:

'Are You What You Want to Be'
'Ask Yourself'
'Coming of Age'
'Nevermind'
'The Angelic Welcome of Mr. Jones'
'Best Friend'
'A Beginner's Guide to Destroying the Moon'
'Goats In Trees'
'The Truth'
'Fire Escape'
'Tabloid Super Junky'
