As if the wait between announcement and release wasn’t long enough, the album has been delayed by a week. Presumably this is because someone involved thinks Kylie releasing her album on the 6th will stop them from getting No.1 when the reality is they struggle to get No.2 nowadays.

Delays to avoid other big releases worked well for Lifeblood...

The scenes at Nicky’s when Arctic Monkeys announce their album for the 13th.

It's really been put back a week? Goddamnit!!! I'd love them to get a No.1 again but it never quite happens. Still, all we can do as fans is buy the album when it comes out and hope it sells well over time.

iTunes Canada changed the date to April 13. Wondered if it was Canada-only.

The 13th album being released on Friday the 13th? Let's hope it's not unlucky for them!!!

On a serious note - what a load of bollocks! Does stuff get leaked these days?

Ooh, new snippet on their Facebook, saying about new music on Friday. Really like the snippet they've put it up, sounds quite uplifting. Alright, it's only 14 seconds so probably less than 10% of the song, whatever it is, but I prefer this little bit to International Blue so far... Looking forward to hearing this un.

Damn, I was looking forward to getting new albums from Kylie and the Manics on the same day!

Excited about the new track on Friday though. Love the sound of the snippet on Facebook. Just wish it was still the days of 4 track EPs so we had even more new songs to look forward to.

Very Sixties feel to that snippet. Could almost be from a Connery-era Bond film.

Lovely melodic indie guitar in that clip. A second single two months before the album, does that mean a third will arrive with the album?

Less than two days prior to release and we still don't know the title. Bit of a joke if you ask me!

Not overly impressed with the extract on the video and bit in the album trailer didn't stand out for me either. Was hoping it would be the last song on the video trailer.

Hard to tell about the whole song from that but it reminds me a bit of Interiors.

I think it's got to really.

Love the snippet. Roll on Friday.

They're embracing the instant nature of the internet age. You don't need to announce a new single ages in advance as there's no conventional chart to aim for. I think it's fun that we still don't know which song the new single is.

I do agree about the extract though - didn't exactly knock me sideways.
