Doves are “putting the finishing touches” to their first new album in 11 years

The band's last studio album, 'Kingdom of Rust', arrived back in 2009

Doves have told their fans that they’re currently “putting the finishing touches” to what will be their first new album release in over 11 years.

The band ended their nine-year hiatus last year by returning to the live circuit, which included an emotional return to London at The Royal Albert Hall in support of The Teenage Cancer Trust.

After hinting in 2018 that if “the waters are right, the planets are aligned and we get that right vibe” then they would go about writing new music, Doves have now confirmed that the follow-up to 2009’s ‘Kingdom Of Rust’ is in the final stages of being completed.
