Kaiser Chiefs announce new album Stay Together, unveil new single 'Parachute' - hear it now
Kaiser Chiefs have announced details of their new album, which is to be titled Stay Together.
The album, which is the sixth of the band's career, will be released on October 7th and you can hear first single 'Stay Together' now by clicking below. The album will be available to pre-order it on hmv.com in the coming days.
Stay Together has been produced by Brian Higgins, who has worked with New Order, Girls Aloud and Pet Shop Boys, and is probably best known as one-half of songwriting duo Xenomania, who have penned hits for The Saturdays, Sugababes and Kylie Minogue as well as the vast majority of Girls Aloud's songs.
The album will also feature collaborations with singer MNEK and Wayne Hector, the man behind many of One Direction's biggest tracks. It is the follow-up to the band's 2014 album Education, Education, Education & War and you can see the LP's cover below:
Speaking about the album, frontman Ricky Wilson said: "When we finished writing the last record we realised that the most important thing to everyone is what’s going on in their lives. Their "personal politics" and that’s what this album is about. If Education, Education, Education & War was our protest album, then Stay Together is our relationship album."
He continued: "Brian brought a very different approach to song writing and recording, it was a steep learning curve but together we tried out new ideas and sounds and ended up with a new and fresh sounding Kaiser Chiefs album. Like no Kaiser Chiefs record you have heard before."
The tracklisting for Stay Together is as follows:
'We Stay Together'
'Hole in My Soul'
'Good Clean Fun'
'Why Do You Do It to Me?'
'Happen in a Heartbeat'
