Noah And The Whale are set to send their fans on a treasure hunt for their new album, 'Heart Of Nowhere'.

On May 1 the band will be delivering six parcels to six UK record stores. The parcels will contain a cassette tape copy of 'Heart Of Nowhere' – which will be officially released on May 6.

The parcels will also contain a code to unlock a full album stream on the band's website at Noahandthewhale.com. The stream will become available when all six packages have been found and their codes entered online.

Fans will need to follow the band on Twitter at @Noahandthewhale to get clues about the locations of the record stores. Use the hashtag #UnlockHeartOfNowhere to help with the hunt.

The band have said: "We'll be releasing information over the next few days to help you work out the location of the stores. Each store only has one parcel. It will be handed over by the staff on a first come first served basis on Wednesday."

Noah And The Whale recently unveiled their new album's title track, which features vocals from Anna Calvi. Scroll down to listen.

The band started a four-week residency at Palace Theatre in London's West End last night (April 28). Titled A Month Of Sundays, the residency will also see the band play the venue on May 5, May 12 and May 19.

They will also play a handful of other shows across the UK this summer, including appearances at Liverpool Sound City, Hay-On-Wye Festival and Wilderness Festival.
