Royal Blood have announced details of their third album, and dropped a brand new track to preview it.
The full-length will be titled ‘Typhoons’, and is set for release on 30th April via Warner Records. After revealing the album’s opener ‘Trouble’s Coming’ late last year, they’re now giving us a second taster in the form of the album’s title track.
Vocalist Mike Kerr explains of the record: “We sort of stumbled on this sound, and it was immediately fun to play. That’s what sparked the creativity on the new album, the chasing of that feeling. It’s weird, though – if you think back to “Figure it Out”, it kind of contains the embryo of this album. We realised that we didn’t have to completely destroy what we’d created so far; we just had to shift it, change it. On paper, it’s a small reinvention. But when you hear it, it sounds so fresh.”
The follow-up to 2017’s ‘How Did We Get So Dark’, it was mostly self-produced apart from ‘Boilermaker’ (produced by Queens of the Stone Age’s Josh Homme’ and ‘Who Needs Friends’ (produced by Paul Epworth, who also lends a hand on ‘Trouble’s Coming’).
