The Big Moon have announced their second album.

The follow up to their Mercury Prize-nominated debut 'Love In The 4th Dimension' is called 'Walking Like We Do' and will be released on January 10 via Fiction Records.

Describing it, vocalist and songwriter Juliette Jackson said: "'Walking Like We Do' is about being strong in the face of uncertainty, about standing tall even though you’re completely lost and not being afraid of the future because it just keeps on coming.”

The second cut to be shared from the new record, following It's Easy Then, is Your Light. Explaining the inspiration for the infectious indie-pop track, Jackson continued:

“I was thinking about how hard it is to tell if things are worse now or if they have always been this way and I just grew up and started paying attention. To me, it feels like we are at this tipping point that is unprecedented, but then it occurred to me that every generation before us probably had a moment when they thought they were going to be the last generation on earth.

“This song is about freeing yourself from all of it, just for a moment. It’s a thanks to the one person or thing in your life that knows how to come in and open your curtains and light up the darkness and restore your strength so that when you clatter back down into the real world you have the strength to fight your battles, whatever they are.”

The band have a busy month ahead supporting Pixies on their UK and Ireland arena tour. Following this, they play Manchester's Neighbourhood Festival on October 12 and in early 2020 tour the UK and Ireland with Bombay Bicycle Club.
