Mogwai have shared a new track.

Ritchie Sacramento serves as the second preview of the Scottish post-rock quartet's forthcoming 10th studio album, 'As The Love Continues', due out on February 19 through Rock Action Records. It follows up to 2017's 'Every Country's Sun'.

Cast across shifts in volume, pace and billowing warm guitar tones, it's one of the rarer Mogwai songs to feature vocals, and follows the previously released cut Dry Fantasy. Head below to check out its accompanying video created within the Unreal Games Engine by director Sam Wiehl. Frontman Stuart Braithwaite said:

"Ritchie Sacramento’s title came from a misunderstanding a friend of ours had about how to say Ryuichi Sakamoto. The lyrics were inspired by a story Bob Nastanovich shared about his friend and bandmate David Berman who proclaimed 'Rise Crystal Spear' as he threw a shovel at a sports car. The song is dedicated to all the musician friends we've lost over the years."

On February 13, Mogwai will premiere a performance of 'As The Love Continues' filmed and recorded in its entirety at Tramway in Glasgow. Head here for further information. On February 22, they'll combine with Rough Trade to present an interactive livestream Q&A with special guest Ian Rankin.
