Speaking to NME in 2018, Courteeners frontman Liam Fray said the band’s new material was “explosive” and designed to “blow you away live.”

Adding that the album sounds a “bit LCD Soundsystem and groove-based,” he said: “It’s more dancey, but obviously with real players and a human element. You can hear the fucking breath on the hi-hat, rather than everything being programmed.”

‘More. Again. Forever.’ is available to pre-order here.

The album’s tracklisting is as follows:
