Clean Cut Kid have announced their fourth album.

The follow-up to 2020's 'Mother's Milk' is called 'Hiss' and will arrive in 2022 through Alcopop! Records in the UK and Team Love Records in the US. An exact release date is still to be confirmed.

To celebrate the news, the Liverpool indie-folk quartet have dropped the lead single, Heavy As, a heartfelt acoustic offering inspired by vocalist Mike Halls' father. Commenting on the song, Halls said:

"Me and my dad are standing on my balcony overlooking Liverpool after a night out together. He takes a drag on his cigarette and says: 'Imagine you make this tiny baby who's so premature he fights to stay alive for weeks. Then one day you buy that kid a guitar, and watch him get better and better. Then you go to his graduation, see him marry the love of his life, sign a record deal and play a sold out Royal Albert Hall. And now you’re standing in a flat he bought from writing songs...sounds heavy doesn’t it?' he says, taking another drag, '...it's not!'. That night after he fell asleep I wrote this song."

They'll return to the road later this year for The Live Version Tour of the UK, with tickets for the shows on general sale at 10am on August 20.
