The Good, The Bad And The Queen have dropped a new track.

Gun To The Head is the latest to be lifted from their forthcoming new album, 'Merrie Land', which was produced alongside Tony Visconti and is set to arrive on November 16.

The record marks the first time Damon Albarn, Clash bassist Paul Simonon, Verve guitarist Simon Tong and  drummer Tony Allen have teamed up since the release of their Danger Mouse-produced self-titled LP in 2007. 

The band will support the album with dates in Tynemouth and Cullercoats in late November, before heading to Blackpool, Glasgow and London, where they'll play three nights at Earth. Tickets for the December shows are already on sale, and tickets for the November dates go on sale at 9am on November 7.

Head below to check out the new single's video, which features the return of the creepy ventriloquist dummy from the clip for the record's title track, which is sure to remind you of the even creepier Teddy Perkins character from Atlanta. Gun To The Head finds Albarn's wandering narrative delivered over organs and strings, plus a wind instrument intro and the more traditional tinkling of keys.

Mon November 26 2018 - TYNEMOUTH CIU Club
Tue November 27 2018 - CULLERCOATS Crescent Club

Thu 17 Nov 2011
The Coronet has seen a few name changes in its time, but as a landmark of Londonís musical and theatrical history, itís a fitting venue for the Good the Bad and the Queen to play the album Damon Albarn described as a song cycle and mystery play about London. And with the theme of the flood hanging over those songs, who better to celebrate the arrival in London of the Rainbow Warrior III, and the 40th anniversary of Greenpeace.

Fri 10 May 2019
Three albums in and Matthew and the Atlas seem to be in a position to capitalise on all aspects of their previous work. Matt Hegarty’s adventure started with some folky EPs, followed by the synth-based 2014 debut album ‘Other Rivers’. ‘Temple’ then retreated to a more stripped down approach, but with ‘Morning Dancer’ we’re treated to a more eclectic collection.
