Baba Ali have announced the release of their second record, ‘Laugh Like A Bomb’.

The record was recorded in only three weeks, and mixed by Sheffield producer Ross Orton. It’s set for release on 21st April.

The title is derived from a passage of the early 20th Century radical art manifesto BLAST!, the band explain: “The moment I saw the phrase ‘Laugh Like A Bomb’, I was immediately struck by how accurate it described what I was feeling. Personally, I was going through a lot of feelings of uncertainty, and living in a foreign country intensified this sense of vulnerability. Writing this record became a way for me to work through and document these emotions and triggering experiences, almost like therapy.”

The duo also released their lead single ‘Burn Me Out’; check it out below.

The full tracklist for ‘Laugh Like A Bomb’ is as follows:

01. Hold My Head
02. Burn Me Out
03. Gold Rush!
