Kasabian have announced details of their new album '48:13'.

The band's fifth album – due for release on June 9 – is named for its running time, which is a total of 48 minutes and 13 seconds. The first single from the album, 'Eez-eh', will be released on June 2.

The artwork for the album is the same as the mural the band painted on a shop on Kingsland Road in London's Dalston earlier this month.

Guitarist Sergio Pizzorno, who wrote and produced the album, said in a statement: "I felt that we had the confidence to be more direct, more honest with this album. I started to strip away layers rather than to just keep adding."

Frontman Tom Meighan added: "Less is more, you know? It's direct. It is what it is. Just listen to it. We've had the confidence to lay ourselves bare. Serge has stripped it right back. It's unbelievable."

Kasabian will headline this year's Glastonbury Festival alongside Arcade Fire and an unnamed third headliner. Watch an exclusive video of the band talking about the gig below.

Earlier today (April 28), it was announced that the band will also headline the In New Music We Trust stage at BBC Radio 1's One Big Weekend in Glasgow Green.

The '48:13' tracklisting is as follows:

'(Shiva)'
'Bumblebeee'
'Stevie'
'(Mortis)'
'Doomsday'
'Treat'
'Glass'
'Explodes'
'(Levitation)'
'Clouds'
'Eez-eh'
'Bow'
'SPS'
