The song is taken from the band's fifth album 'Too Much Information', which is released on February 3. It is the follow-up to their 2012 LP 'The National Health'.
Recorded in Sunderland with the band's keyboardist Lukas Wooller and Field Music’s Brewis brothers 'Leave This Island’ will be available on 12” vinyl and digitally, complete with exclusive B-side 'A Vague Implication', a Mogwai remix of 'Leave This Island' and a mix of 'Brain Cells' from The Invisible's Dave Okumu.
Last month the band unveiled the first track to be taken from the album, 'Brain Cells', which fans can download for free.
The trio also announced details of a deluxe edition of the album, which will feature a series of bonus cover tracks including their version of The Fall's 'Edinburgh Man' (renamed 'Middlesborough Man' for the record), Mazzy Star's 'Fade Into You' and Leonard Cohen's 'Lover, Lover, Lover'. Tour dates in support of the album can be seen below.
