'Kingdom Of Rust' will be out in April

Doves have announced that they will release their fourth album, ‘Kingdom Of Rust’, on April 6 – and a new single of the same name a week earlier.

The Manchester band have made the opening song from the album, ‘Jetstream’, available to download free from Doves.net. The song will be available for two weeks from today (January 28).

DovesJez Williams had previously told NME.COM that he thought that the songs on the new album were “schizophrenic, but they are also strangely cohesive”.

‘Jetstream’

‘Kingdom Of Rust’

‘Winter Hill’

‘10.03’

‘The Greatest Denier’

‘Birds Flew Backwards’
