The Darkness have shared the first single from their upcoming seventh album Motorheart.

The song is the title-track from the record, and according to frontman Justin Hawkins, "rocks harder than anything we've done before".

"It makes me happy and proud to crank it up and literally shake my Swiss chalet to its foundations," he continues. "Dan [Hawkins] did an awesome job on the production, it’ll take your face off, but your skull will be grinning from meatus to meatus. Please, to enjoy."
