‘Love Letters’ was recorded at London’s analogue Toe Rag studios and the album will be trailed with two small shows, at Brighton’s The Old Market on January 29, 2014 and Paris Maroquinerie on January 31 before the full tour in March.
Speaking about the new album, frontman Joe Mount recently told NME that it is inspired by The Zombies, Sly and The Family Stone and the birth of his first child.
Discussing his newfound confidence ahead of making the album, Mount said: “It’s weird, I think I’ve learnt the difference between being confident in an egotistical way and being confident in what you do. I was getting embarrassed and finding it difficult to sing things that I’d written without cringing.”
