News Editors announce new album ‘EBM’


Check out new track ‘Karma Climb’ now.

After returning with ‘Heart Attack’ back in April - their first new music since 2019 - Editors have announced that they’ve got an album on the way.

Set for release on 23rd September via Play It Again Sam, ‘EBM’ will be the group’s seventh record, and first with new band member Benjamin John Power, aka Blanck Mass.

“There is a strong physicality to this record,” Power says. “EBM started its life with the intention of connecting with people and filling a very physical space. There is also however an emotional physicality running throughout; An urgency and a sense of panic. An unease. Even in its more tender moments there is a yearning for connection.”

Sharing new track ‘Karma Clim’ alongside the news, Tom Smith notes, “It’s about hedonistic escapism, not only from the world generally, but also from what people think of you.”
