The band's fifth LP will be supported by a show at London's Heaven in May
Matt and Kim have announced their latest album, ‘New Glow’.
The Brooklyn duo will release their fifth LP on April 6. It will be followed by a one-off UK show at London’s Heaven on May 28. Tickets for the show go on general sale at 9am on March 23. ‘New Glow’ will feature the songs ‘Get It’, ‘Hey Now’ and ‘Hoodie On’, all of which can be heard below.
Speaking about the album, Matt of the duo commented: “The best era of music is right now and we’re doing our best work yet.”
“Anyone who has seen us knows we love any style of music you can have fun and get wild to,” he explains. “I’m not sure we were able to put that diversity on any of our albums the way we did on ‘New Glow’. While there are definitely songs that will feel familiar to people who know our stuff, there are also songs like ‘Get It’ which have always been part of who we are but went unrecorded to this point. We helped edit a lyric video for ‘Get It’, using live footage from a handful of festivals and shows we played in the last couple years. Going through that footage really made it hard to believe how lucky we are to have the best fucking job in the world.” The LP follows 2012’s ‘Lightning’.
