The Vaccines stream new track ‘Minimal Affection’ – listen

The band's third album 'English Graffiti' will be released in May

The Vaccines have unveiled a new track from their upcoming third album.

The band have already shared lead single ‘Dream Lover’ and showcased album cut ’20/20′ live, now they’ve dropped this new number ‘Minimal Affection’. Listen below.

The Vaccines’ forthcoming album ‘English Graffiti’ will be available to download from May 18 and is out physically a week later on May 25. The record was produced by the band themselves, Dave Fridmann and Cole MGN, who has also produced records for Ariel Pink and Beck.

In a recent video interview with NME, frontman Justin Hayward-Young revealed that the third album “sounds more like a rock record than an indie record – which was one of the big aims… I think it’s an ambitious record as well”. He also says the album is “quite eclectic sounding in terms of song style”. See a video interview with the band below.

The ‘English Graffiti’ tracklisting is as follows:

‘Handsome’
‘Dream Lover’
‘Minimal Affection’
’20/20′
‘(All Afternoon) In Love’
‘Denial’
‘Want U So Bad’
‘Radio Bikini’
