Set for release on September 10, the fifth album from the London band was recorded at Sonic Ranch in El Paso, Texas and produced by Daniel Ledinsky, known for his past work with Tove Lo, Rihanna and TV On The Radio.
Frontman Justin Young said the record is inspired by his experiences of a house swap in Los Angeles as well as Ridley Scott’s futuristic interpretation of the same city in Blade Runner.
“In some obvious ways we’re more connected than ever,” Young explained. “But we’re also more polarised than we’ve been for 100 years and the world is getting colder. What if there was a place where love and other emotions had run dry – but you could go to Love City to get them?”
The band’s most recent album, ‘Combat Sports’, came out in 2018.
