Doves announce new album 'The Universal Want'

Having first teased their long-awaited comeback with last month's single 'Carousel', Doves have now announced the details behind their new studio album, arriving in the coming months.

The new full-length 'The Universal Want' will become their first since the 2009 LP 'Kingdom Of Rust', is being previewed by the new lead single 'Prisoners', and is expected to be released on the 11th September via Virgin EMI.

Speaking about the new offering, drummer and vocalist Andy Williams said, "It’s about continually chasing something and not being satisfied when you eventually get it. You’ve got ‘that thing’ and you find you’re not any happier. Be careful what you wish for."

While guitarist Jez Williams added on the new record, "It’s definitely got the stamp of ‘the time’ all over it. Everything on the album is an echo. It’s an echo of what we were going through at the time. Getting back together, the Royal Albert Hall and everything else."
