Following a surprise show at London’s Village Underground last night (October 17), IDLES have announced details of their fifth album.
Entitled TANGK (pronounced ‘tank’ with a little hint of the ‘g’), the band’s upcoming record is due out on February 16, 2024 via Partisan. “I needed love. So I made it,” says vocalist Joe Talbot. “I gave love out to the world and it feels like magic. This is our album of gratitude and power. All love songs. All is love.”
To mark the announcement, today IDLES have shared lead single Dancer, featuring LCD Soundsystem’s James Murphy and Nancy Whang. Joe describes the track as “the violence that comes from the pounding heart of the dancefloor and rushes through your body and gives you life from music, from love and from you.”
