New record set for May 9 release

Wild Beasts will release their third album on May 9.

Called ‘Smother’, the album was penned in six weeks in east London last year and recorded over a month in Snowdonia, Wales with longterm co-producer Richard Formby.

Speaking to NME earlier in the year, co-frontman Tom Fleming said the album has seen the band “spread our wings”.

He added: “The songs are more concise and direct than they’ve ever been, I think we’ve done that stuff better than ever before.”

The record will be the follow-up to 2009’s ‘Two Dancers’.

The tracklisting for ‘Smother’ is:

‘Lion’s Share’
‘Bed Of Nails’
‘Deeper’
‘Loop The Loop’
‘Plaything’
‘Invisible’
‘Albatross’
‘Reach A Bit Further’
‘Burning’
‘End Come Too Soon’

The band have also announced a UK tour to take place around the release of the album.
