Release coincides with UK shows

Air have named their forthcoming new album ‘Pocket Symphony’.

The LP, the band’s first since 2004’s ‘Talkie Walkie’, has been co-produced by Nigel Godrich.

Describing the album, the band’s Nicolas Godin said: “This album is different. We decided to go back to the soundtrack music-style, with more instrumentals and less songs.”

To coincide with the release of the duo’s fourth studio album, Air will appear for three UK dates in March.

They will play:

Glasgow ABC (March 14)

Manchester Academy (15)

London Forum (16)
