The duo have also shared their newest track ‘Out of My Head’.

First Aid Kit have announced plans to release their fifth album later this year.

The duo - made up by sisters Johanna and Klara Söderberg - will follow up their 2018 album ‘Ruins’ with their new full-length ‘Palomino’ on 4th November.

The record was produced by Daniel Bengtson and features their previously-released track ‘Angel’ - which landed back in June - along with their new offering ‘Out of My Head’, which you can hear below.

Speaking of their forthcoming album, the band have said: “This is the first record we’ve recorded in Sweden since we made our debut album ‘The Big Black & The Blue’ 12 years ago! We worked with Swedish producer Daniel Bengtson at his lovely studio Studio Rymden in Stockholm. It was such a fun experience. We really let the recording take time, we didn’t want to rush it.

“The songs were mostly written during the pandemic. In such dark times, music felt like an escape from all the horrible things going on in the world. We wanted this album to feel more upbeat and cheerful than our previous album Ruins, which was a break-up record. It’s probably our most pop sounding record yet. We took inspiration from all over the place - old acts such as Fleetwood Mac, Carole King, Tom Petty, T Rex, Elton John but also Angel Olsen, Whitney, and Big Thief. The title is a reference to freedom, learning how to stand on your own two feet. Growing older and feeling more comfortable in your own skin. Riding off on a Palomino!”
