Matt and Kim confirm details of fifth album, ‘New Glow’

The record will be released next month.

Brooklyn pair Matt and Kim have confirmed details of album, ‘New Glow’.

It’ll be released on 6th April via Virgin EMI, with the band also announcing a one-off London gig for later this spring, headlining Heaven on 28th May.

Of the record, the duo’s fifth and follow-up to 2012’s ‘Lightning’, the Matt-shaped half of the band says: “Anyone who has seen us knows we love any style of music you can have fun and get wild to. I’m not sure we were able to put that diversity on any of our albums the way we did on New Glow. While there are definitely songs that will feel familiar to people who know our stuff, there are also songs like ‘Get It’ which have always been part of who we are but went unrecorded to this point. We helped edit a lyric video for ‘Get It’, using live footage from a handful of festivals and shows we played in the last couple years. Going through that footage really made it hard to believe how lucky we are to have the best f**king job in the world.”

Tickets for the London gig will be available with album pre-order packages from 9am Friday 20th March, or on general sale from Monday 23rd March at 9am.

The record features three new songs the band have previewed with videos, ‘Hey Now’, ‘Hoodie On’ and ‘Get It’. Watch below.
