LoneLady, aka Julie Campbell, has announced her third album.

The follow-up to 2015's 'Hinterland' is called 'Former Things' and will arrive on June 25 via Warp Records.

The LP's eight tracks were penned, performed and recorded entirely by Campbell at Somerset House Studios Rifle Range, an 18th century shooting range in London that's been adapted into a performance space. She said:

"I was hungry for a change of scene. Born and bred in Manchester, my home city is like walking around a giant living diary, an archaeology of myself, layered with memories. Following meetings with Somerset House Studios Director Marie McPartlin, in June 2016 I moved from Manchester to London to become a Studio member. I set up a new studio in 'The Rifle Range', an 18th-Century Naval shooting gallery. In this long, narrow concrete room I set up my studio to be part art-installation, part nightclub where I could turn the volume up loud and project Cabaret Voltaire super-8 videos and Ingmar Bergman films across the stone walls. I was located at the dramatic heart of it all, not far from Trafalgar Square and Buckingham Palace - quite a change from my previous studios nestled in the crumbling darklands of Manchester’s outskirts."

As a preview, LoneLady has unveiled the record's funky new single Fear Colours, self-described as, "an electroscape of funk, crunch and vocoder-ed fear!" It's the second cut to be shared from the record, following (There Is) No Logic. Check out the electro-pop piece below, alongside the artwork and tracklist.

Campbell will support the release with a UK and Ireland tour this autumn, and a second run of UK and European dates in early 2022. She's also set to appear at End Of The Road festival in September.

1. The Catcher
