The Cribs are giving away a brand new album track, NME.COM can exclusively reveal.

The have decided to make ‘We Were Aborted’ available as a download from today (July 7). The track will only be available for 24 hours.

The song is the first material to be taken from the band’s fourth album ‘Ignore The Ignorant’, the group’s first to feature Johnny Marr as a full member.

Speaking about the track, Ryan Jarman told NME.COM: “‘We Were Aborted’ is the first song that The Cribs ever wrote with Johnny, literally the first thing we did, just plugged in and this came straight out. I think that because of that it has retained a lot of urgency which is something we have always tried to maintain. That said, it’s not the track most representative of the new record by any means, I think it’s the one that most people will recognise as The Cribs opposed to some of the other tracks on the record though.”

To download the track head to now.

‘Ignore The Ignorant’ is released on September 7.
