IDLES announce new album 'Ultra Mono'

After their 2018 sophomore album 'Joy As An Act Of Resistance' topped many albums of the year lists, including our own, IDLES have now announced their plans for a new studio LP, arriving later this year.

The new full-length 'Ultra Mono' was recorded in Paris and produced by Nick Launay (Nick Cave, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Arcade Fire) and Adam ‘Atom’ Greenspan (Anna Calvi, Cut Copy), will include the previously unveiled track 'Mr. Motivator' alongside the newly shared offering 'Grounds', and is set to be released on the 25th September via Partisan Records.

Speaking about the new single, frontman Joe Talbot said, “We wanted to write a song that embodied self-belief, and gave us self-belief - a counter-punch to all the doubt we build up from all the noise we so easily let in. We wanted to make the sound of our own hearts’ marching band, armed with a jack hammer and a smile. We wanted to make the sound of our engine starting. So we did. Thank you."
