It’s “a breakup album - but with your country”.

Riz Ahmed has announced details of a new album.

‘The Long Goodbye’ will be released on 6th March, was produced alongside Swet Shop Boys collaborator Redinho, and comes alongside a short film directed by Aneil Karia.

This album takes you on the journey of this breakup; through the stages of denial, anger, acceptance, and finally self-love to counter the hate.”

The track listing is:

1. The Breakup (Shikwa)
2. Toba Tek Singh
3. Fast Lava
4. Any Day (Feat. Jay Sean)
5. Can I Live
6. Where You From
