Django Django have announced their fourth studio album.

'Glowing In The Dark', the follow-up to 2018's 'Marble Skies', is due out on February 12 through Because Music and is built on the multifaceted theme of escape. It will feature the previously released single Spirals, and the newly shared title track. 

The latter is a genre-blending offering that revolves around a sample from one of drummer and producer Dave Maclean’s spoken word records that's interspersed with Moog synths and dynamic beats. Head below to watch its video, which was directed by New York City artist and illustrator Bráulio Amado, who said:

"I didn't want to be literal and do something *glowing in the dark*, so in my head the video is somewhat an abstract representation of the song title without being too obvious. I wanted it to feel organic, I wanted to feel trippy, vibrant and colorful. This was done during the pandemic, with Vinny shooting himself on a greenscreen at home with his iphone, so I just wanted to take him out of the weird world and time we are all living through right now and transport him to a more fun place far away from here."

The band's singer and guitarist Vincent Neff added:

"He [Amado] gave me some loose directions of what he wanted me to do via email. Then me and my brother in law got a tripod, my phone and a speaker and went to a deserted industrial estate around the back of my house and shot a bunch of stuff then turned the footage over to Braulio. We love what he's done with it and how the energy and vibe of the visuals really lock with the track."

Django Django have a livestream event lined up for November 25. Their next in-person show is currently set for July 16, when they'll support Belle and Sebastian at The Amphitheatre, Bristol Harbourside.
