Doves are set to release a new album later this year.

'The Universal Want' will land on September 11 via Virgin EMI, marking the indie trio's first full-length effort since 2009's 'Kingdom Of Rust'. The news arrives with the release of the forthcoming LP's lead single, Prisoners, a midtempo number that experiments with churning, angular guitar riffs. Give it a spin below, and check out the new record's tracklist and artwork.

Guitarist Jez Williams said: 

“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.”

Doves recently marked their comeback with the eclectic track Carousels, which will also feature on 'The Universal Want'.

'The Universal Want' tracklist:

  1. Carousels
  2. I Will Not Hide
  3. Broken Eyes
  4. For Tomorrow 
  5. Cathedrals Of The Mind
  6. Prisoners
  7. Cycle Of Hurt
  8. Mother Silver Lake
  9. Universal Want
  10. Forest House
