Wild Beasts announce new album details

Wild Beasts will release their third album on May 9.

Called 'Smother', the album was penned in six weeks in east London last year and recorded over a month in Snowdonia, Wales with longterm co-producer Richard Formby.

Speaking to [i]NME[/i] earlier in the year, co-frontman Tom Fleming said the album has seen the band "spread our wings".

He added: "The songs are more concise and direct than they've ever been, I think we've done that stuff better than ever before."

The record will be the follow-up to 2009's 'Two Dancers'.

The tracklisting for 'Smother' is:

'Lion's Share'
'Bed Of Nails'
'Deeper'
'Loop The Loop'
'Plaything'
'Invisible'
'Albatross'
'Reach A Bit Further'
'Burning'
'End Come Too Soon'

The band have also announced a UK tour to take place around the release of the album, with tickets on sale from this Friday (February 25).
