Having spent the last year or so teasing their return with new material, Bicep have now announced their plans for a new studio album, arriving early next year.
The new full-length 'Isles' will include the previously shared cut 'Atlas' alongside the newly unveiled offering 'Apricots', and is set to be released on the 21st January 2021 via Ninja Tune.
Speaking about the record's title, the band said, “We have strong mixed emotions, connected to growing up on an island, wanting to leave, wanting to return. It’s always been an unquantifiable topic for us. We’re not religious, but we're both from different religious backgrounds. There was always a lot of interest in us talking about those issues, but we always felt that one of the things we loved about dance music was that freedom it gave you to be released from talking about those things.”
Check out the new video for 'Apricots', directed by Mark Jenkin, who recently took home a 2020 BAFTA for Outstanding Debut by a British Director for his 2019 film ‘Bait’, in the player and see the album's full tracklisting below.
