The album is the follow-up to the singer's 2008 self-titled debut and is due to be released on June 4. It has been recorded over the past two years at producer Pascal Gabriel's house in the south of France.

Speaking to NME about the album, Ladyhawke, whose real name is Pip Brown, said that her second LP is both darker and rockier, with Pixies, Blur and Nirvana her main influences during its creation.

She said of 'Anxiety': "It's a lot more rocky. The tone of it is definitely darker. It's still poppy and fun, but I listened to a lot of guitar rock when I was writing it, stuff like Pixies, Blur, Nirvana and I've always wanted to make a guitar record. There's no synth, but there's some organ. It's more of a straight-up rock record."
