Wild Beasts Announce New Album 'Present Tense'

Listen to preview track 'Wanderlust' now...
Wild Beasts

Wild Beasts are set to release their new album 'Present Tense' on February 24th.

Wild Beasts have made no secret of their intention to record new material. Working at London's KONK Studio and at The Distillery in Bath, sessions took almost a year to complete.

Yet suddenly, just like that, the wait for new material is over. Last night (January 7th) Zane Lowe played a new Wild Beasts track on his Radio 1 show, with social media almost immediately lighting up.

'Wanderlust' points towards a more electronic influence, yet retaining the otherworldly feel of their opening albums.

Check it out below.

Assisted in the studio process by producers Lexxx and Brian Eno protégé Leo Abrahams, 'Present Tense' will be released on February 24th. Available on CD, digital and LP, the album will also be pressed up as a deluxe LP with a bonus 12 inch featuring Factory Floor and The Field.
