Wolfmother have surprised fans with the release of their third album, 'New Crown'. Scroll down to hear the album now.

'New Crown' is the Australian band's third album and their first since 'Cosmic Egg' was released in 2009 and is available to download from today (March 24). The release comes after frontman Andrew Stockdale (pictured right) claimed just last year that he will no longer be performing under the name Wolfmother.

Speaking at the time, Stockdale said: "For the last three years I’ve performed as Wolfmother, and I don't feel comfortable about it. Chris Ross, who played bass and keys in the first line-up when we started, he came up with that band name. That name was for me, Chris and [drummer] Myles Heskett. It became Wolfmother. Because of the success of the name, there was pressure then to call yourself Wolfmother. But it felt weird."

Wolfmother released their self-titled debut in 2005. Ross and Heskett left the band in 2008, citing 'irreconcilable differences' and Stockdale released his first solo album, 'Keep Moving', in 2013. Stockdale is the only founding member of Wolfmother currently playing in the band with bassist/keyboardist Ian Peres, and drummer Vin Steele also part of the line-up.

The 'New Crown' tracklist is as follows:

'How Many Times'
'Enemy Is In Your Mind'
'Heavy Weight'
'New Crown'
'Tall Ships'
'Feelings'
'"I Ain't Got No"'
'She Got It '
'My Tangerine Dream'
'Radio'
