Noah And The Whale have revealed full details about their forthcoming new album.

The band's fourth studio LP will be titled 'Heart Of Nowhere' and is set for release on May 6, 2013. The album, which is their fourth effort in the last five years, was recorded in West London's British Grove Studios and will also be accompanied by a film of the same title, which will be directed by frontman Charlie Fink.

Ahead of the album's release, the band have also announced details of a four-week residency to take place at Palace Theatre in London's West End. Titled 'A Month Of Sundays', the residency will see the band play the venue on April 28, May 5, May 12 and May 19. Tickets will go on general sale from February 8, with fan pre-orders starting on February 6 - for more information, see Noahandthewhale.com.

Speaking previously to NME about the album, Fink said that he and his bandmates had been keen to record live to tape after just two or three takes, giving the record more of a live and organic feel.

"The last record was an album that was built in the studio. And that means you gravitate towards computers and perfection, and it's very easy to do that," he said. "So we decided we wanted to go against that, and sacrifice that technical perfection for emotional intensity. The thing about recording live is, you’ve got nowhere to hide. If the songs aren’t good enough, you’ll find out straight away."

Speaking about the songs themselves, meanwhile, he said that he had taken lyrical inspiration from his adolescent experiences, adding: "There's definitely stuff you can dance to; there's also stuff you can weep to, if you want."
