IDLES have announced a new album.

The follow-up to 2021's Grammy-nominated 'Crawler' is called 'TANGK' and will arrive on February 16 via Partisan Records. It was produced by Nigel Godrich, Kenny Beats and the band's guitarist Mark Bowen. Vocalist Joe Talbot said:

"TANGK. I needed love. So I made it. I gave love out to the world and it feels like magic. This is our album of gratitude and power. All love songs. All is love.”

As a preview, the Bristol post-punk quintet have shared the record's first single, Dancer, a muscular yet melodic track offering gang vocals alongside Talbot's trademark impassioned spoken-word delivery and backing vocals by James Murphy and Nancy Whang of LCD Soundsystem. Talbot commented:

“'Dancer’ is the violence that comes from the pounding heart of the dancefloor and rushes through your body and gives you life from music, from love and from you."

The news follows IDLES' surprise set at London’s Village Underground last night (October 17). They'll finish out the year with gigs in Istanbul, Hong Kong and Bangkok. Next spring, they'll embark on their biggest run of European shows to date. Tickets are on sale now.

1. IDEA 01
2. Gift Horse
4. Roy
5. A Gospel
6. Dancer
7. Grace
8. Hall & Oates
9. Jungle
