Idles have announced a live album.

'A Beautiful Thing: IDLES Live at Le Bataclan' will arrive on December 6 through Partisan Records. As the title suggests, it was filmed during their show at the Paris venue, which took place in December 2018. Vocalist Joe Talbot said:

"Our show at Bataclan was the end of a very long journey for us. On that tour we learnt so much about ourselves, each other and the audiences we have grown with over the past 10 years. That show was nothing short of catharsis and nothing more than love. We love what we do and the people who have carried us here, there was no hiding that at Bataclan and we are so very grateful that the moment was captured in all its glory, love and fatigue. Long live the open minded and long live the moment."
