The Gaslight Anthem have announced the release of “45”, the first track to be taken from the band’s fourth album, Handwritten.
The song will receive its world premiere on Monday April 30 on BBC Radio 1 at 7.30pm (BST) as DJ Zane Lowe’s Hottest Record in the World.
Speaking about the new album, frontman Brian Fallon has previously described the songs from ‘Handwritten’ as “pretty personal and pretty aggressive”. The album does not have a scheduled release date as yet.
The Gaslight Anthem recently announced a one-off UK show for this summer. The New Jersey band will play London’s KOKO venue on June 11.
The band recorded the follow-up to 2010’s American Slang in Nashville and have also confirmed via their Twitter account Twitter.com/Gaslightanthem that they have also recently recorded a number of covers and a selection of B-sides.
