Band's new song 'I See You' will feature on upcoming fourth album
The Horrors have named their new album ‘Luminous’ and have shared the first track to be taken from the record.
The band’s fourth album will be released on May 5. Scroll up to hear new song ‘I See You’ now. Fans who pre-order the album, co-produced by the band alongside Craig Silvey, will get an instant free download of the song ahead of the album release.
The Horrors reveal all about the album to NME in this week’s magazine, available on newsstands and digitally from Wednesday (February 26).
Speaking about the title of the album, which is the band’s first since they released ‘Skying’ in 2011, frontman Faris Badwan says: “It’s a powerful image: giving off light and releasing energy. It sums up a lot of the ways we make music. One thing that’s always been central to the band is that we’ve kept the same level of intensity since the beginning.”
Moving on to the sound of ‘Luminous’, Badwan continues: “This is the album I’ve been most excited about releasing. I think it would be misleading to say it’s got more guitars or more synths, because half the time the guitars sound like synths anyway. Is it fair to say there’s more of everything.”
The Horrors will perform at the NME Awards 2014 with Austin, Texas. The ceremony takes place this week (February 26) at London’s O2 Academy Brixton, and will be hosted by BBC Radio 1 presenter and NME columnist Huw Stephens. Drenge, Metronomy and Godlike Geniuses Blondie are also all set to perform live. Paul McCartney will also attend to collect the special, one-off honour of NME’s Songwriter’s Songwriter, while Damon Albarn will collect the brand new NME Award For Innovation.
The tracklist for ‘Luminous’ is as follows:
‘First Day Of Spring’
‘So Now You Know’
‘In and Out Of Sight’
‘I See You’
‘Change Your Mind’
‘Mine and Yours’
