Check out new track 'Courage'

With two acclaimed albums under his belt, Conor O'Brien went back into the studio last year to work on fresh material.

Taking complete control of sessions, the singer wrote, recorded and mixed the material on his own in the loft of a converted farmhouse.

Now complete, Villagers will release new album 'Darling Arithmetic' on April 13th via Domino Records (pre-order LINK).

New single 'Courage' is online now, and it's a sparse, moving return. The lyrics read: "It took a little time to get where I wanted / It took a little time to get free / It took a little time to be honest / It took a little time to be me."

The accompanying visuals were also directed by O'Brien (is there anything he can't do?) - find them below.
