The Drums frontman Jonny Pierce is set to release his debut solo album next year.

The album will be released early in 2013 and was written, recorded and produced by Pierce.

Scroll down to listen to the song 'I Didn't Realise', which comes from the as-yet-untitled album.

Of the album, Pierce has said: "Some might say it's strange for a man to bare his soul the way I do on this album but I wanted to do something that exposed me for who I am even more so than anything I have done with The Drums."

He added: "I wanted to be as self-indulgent as possible with this album. This is pop done the way I think it should be done."

Pierce took to his official Facebook page to let fans know that The Drums are set to start work on their third album soon. He wrote: "oh and to clarify- The Drums are going STRONG. 3rd album starting soon. It will be grand".

The Drums released their debut, self-titled album in 2010 and its follow-up 'Portamento' in 2011.
