The band collaborated with Gorgon City on the new track
The track is the first to be revealed from their forthcoming third album and was produced by Gorgon City, who scored a Top Five hit this week with ‘Ready For Your Love’.
“This record is very much about the present, an emotionally honest album about technological and personal progression,” said Jamie Reynolds. The new record, which is expected to be released in late spring, also features production from The Chemical Brothers’ Tom Rowlands, Erol Alkan and James Murphy.
Speaking to NME earlier this year, Reynolds described the sound of the album as “classy and euphoric”, saying: “It covers leftfield electronica and pop. It’s where we always said we were gonna place ourselves – it just took us a while to learn how to get there.”
Klaxons made their UK festival comeback at last May’s The Great Escape. The band had performed at Newquay’s Relentless Boardmasters festival in 2011 but since then only played a handful of shows in Europe and the US. Opening with ‘Atlantis To Interzone’, the new rave veterans tore through an 11-song set that included five new songs, plus fan favourites ‘Golden Skans’ and ‘Gravity’s Rainbow’. Actress Keira Knightley, who married keyboard player James Righton in a ceremony in France, was reportedly supporting her new husband from the crowd.
Further details on the new album and tour dates are expected to be announced soon.
