IDLES have announced a new album, TANGK, which will be out Febraury 16 via Partisan. The band’s Mark Bowen co-produced the album with Nigel Godrich and Kenny Beats (who also worked on 2021’s CRAWLER). “TANGK. I needed love. So I made it,” says frontman Joe Talbot. “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.”
The first single from TANGK is the driving “Dancer” which features backing vocals from James Murphy and Nancy Whang of LCD Soundsystem (who IDLES toured with this summer). “’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,” Talbot says.
You can watch the “Dancer” video, directed by Jocelyn Anquetil, below.
