Today's new album releases: The Kooks, Pulled Apart By Horses and more
Plus new albums from The Vines, Esben and The Witch, Tops and Young Jeezy
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."
'Forgive & Forget'
'See Me Now'
'It Was London'
'Are We Electric'
