Pulled Apart By Horses and The Kooks lead this week's list of new album releases (September 1).

Produced by frontman Luke Pritchard and hip-hop producer Inflo, The Kooks' fourth album 'Listen' features the recent singles 'Down' and 'Around Town'. Scroll down for a full tracklisting.

Pritchard recently said that the album is so different to their old material that the band could have released it under a different name.

"I think of this album as a debut album. We could have renamed the band, it felt that different," Pritchard said. "The first three albums were chapter one, this album is the first of chapter two."

'Listen' tracklisting:

'Around Town'
'Forgive & Forget'
'See Me Now'
'It Was London'
'Bad Habit'
'Are We Electric'
'Sweet Emotion'

Meanwhile, Pulled Apart By Horses release their third album, 'Blood'. The album follows the 2012 release of 'Tough Love' and the Leeds band's self-titled debut from 2010.

Elsewhere, there are new records from The Vines, Esben and The Witch, TOPS and Young Jeezy, while Lonely The Brave, Indiana and Ballet School release their debut albums.
