Ben Howard has released a new single, Walking Backwards.

The driving experimental pop track serves as the second preview of his fifth studio album, 'Is It?', due out on June 16 through Island Records. He said:

"Walking Backwards is a song to remind ourselves you are doing just fine. A small, personal resistance to the growing pressure to conform. To let go of the constant expectation that we should be striving for more and ploughing forever forwards.. You are doing great, keep up the good work."

It'll be joined on the record by the previously unveiled lead single and opening track, Couldn’t Make It Up, shared in April alongside details of the record.

Howard kicked off an extensive UK and European tour yesterday (May 18) in Madrid. The trek includes a concert at London's Royal Albert Hall on June 1, and wraps up at Cardiff Castle on July 23. His live schedule also features appearances at various festivals, including Boardmasters and Victorious in August.
