Stereophonics debut new song 'Violins and Tambourines' - watch

The track is taken from their eighth studio album

Stereophonics have unveiled a brand new song, 'Violins and Tambourines'.

The song is taken from their forthcoming eighth album, and is accompanied by a video directed by frontman Kelly Jones.

When I first started writing songs I realised they could paint pictures in your mind, which inevitably leads to telling stories. I've always wanted to combine them both."

He added: "Directing for the first time with a fantastic crew and cast was a great experience. Here's an appetiser of film and new music from our 8th album - listen with headphones!"

The band's new album, also called 'Violins and Tambourines', is set for release next year. It follows their 2009 LP 'Keep Calm and Carry On'.

Stereophonics recently became a four-piece, welcoming drummer Jamie Morrison to the band - replacing Javier Weyler – who joins Jones, Richard Jones on bass and Adam Zindani on guitar.

In July, the band helped to open up the London 2012 Olympic Games at a gig in Hyde Park, alongside Duran Duran, Paolo Nutini and Snow Patrol.
