The Vaccines reveal new single ‘Dream Lover’ – listen

Single will feature on new album 'English Graffiti'

The Vaccines have premiered their new single ‘Dream Lover’ – scroll down to hear the track now.

The single was played for the first time on BBC Radio 1 last night (March 30) and will appear on the band’s forthcoming third album, ‘English Graffiti’.

‘Dream Lover’ will be released on May 18, and the album will follow a week later, on May 25.

‘English Graffiti’ was recorded at Dave Fridmann’s (The Flaming Lips, Tame Impala, MGMT) Tarbox Road Studio in 2014 and is produced by The Vaccines, Fridmann and Cole MGN (Ariel Pink, Beck, Nite Jewel).

Speaking to NME in a video interview which you can watch below, frontman Justin Young revealed that the band’s third LP “sounds more like a rock record than an indie record – which was one of the big aims… I think it’s an ambitious record as well”. He also says the album is “quite eclectic sounding in terms of song style”.

The band also said that they’ve been more adventurous with their new album and intend for the record to be so “genre-defining” that it will “sound terrible in 10 years”.

The ‘English Graffiti’ tracklisting is as follows:

‘Dream Lover’
‘Minimal Affection’
‘(All Afternoon) In Love’
‘Want You So Bad’
‘Radio Bikini’
‘Maybe I Could Hold You’
‘Give Me A Sign’
