Baltimore synthpop three-piece Future Islands are giving fans the chance to listen to their new album 'Singles' before its release next week (March 24). Scroll down to listen.

The release is the band's fourth studio album, and follows their critically acclaimed 2011 album 'On The Water'. All 10 of the tracks featured on the album were produced by Chris Coady, who has worked with the likes of Yeah Yeah Yeahs and Grizzly Bear.

The band recently finished a mini European tour, and told NME that the experience was "mindblowing". Frontman Samuel T Herring said: "I love being onstage. You can share truths about your life and connect with people."

Speaking about the new album, Herring said: "We're definitely of the school of thinking that an album should be a whole experience, because those are the sort of records we loved growing up. We’re not of that iPod culture where you listen to one or two songs and that’s what you know; we’ve always wanted to make these complete works... in the past we’ve tried to make things ebb and flow, with this one every song has its strengths, every song stands alone. It’s our most diverse album, I feel it shows our versatility as musicians and writers."

The album is streaming in full now via NPR. Click below to listen.
