The Gaslight Anthem have announced the release of their brand new single, '45'.

'45' is the first track to be taken from the band's fourth album, 'Handwritten'. The song will receive its world premiere on Monday April 30 on BBC Radio 1 at 7.30pm (BST) as DJ Zane Lowe's Hottest Record in the World. In a statement posted on their Facebook page, the band wrote:

Finally! We are proud to announce that our first single from Handwritten named "45" will receive it's world premier as Zane Lowe Hottest Record in the World on BBC Radio 1 Monday night at 7:30 BST. We are so excited for you to hear it.


Speaking about the new album, frontman Brian Fallon has previously described the songs from 'Handwritten' as "pretty personal and pretty aggressive". The album does not have a scheduled release date as yet.

The Gaslight Anthem recently announced a one-off UK show for this summer. The New Jersey band will play London's KOKO venue on June 11.

The band recorded the follow-up to 2010's 'American Slang' in Nashville and have also confirmed via their Twitter account Twitter.com/Gaslightanthem that they have also recently recorded a number of covers and a selection of B-sides.

The Gaslight Anthem will open up for reunited grunge icons Soundgarden on some of their European summer tour dates.
