Mystery Jets announce new album 'A Billion Heartbeats'

After returning last month to deliver their ode to the NHS in the form of single 'Hospital Radio', Mystery Jets are back to announce the details behind their next studio album.

The new full-length 'A Billion Heartbeats' is being previewed by the new track 'Screwdriver', an uncompromising look at the rise of the rebranded alt-right in the UK, and is set to be released on the 27th September via Caroline International.

Speaking about their latest offering, lead singer Blaine Harrison said, “Screwdriver is about the mechanics of intolerance. Looking back at times of economic instability in history, we see how easily deep chasms grow in society and the population seeks change wherever it is most convincingly promised. Conflict arises as cultures and belief systems clash, unwilling to accept one another’s place in society, because we are fed the rhetoric that our neighbours are those responsible for our problems: then inevitably nationalism once more raises its ugly head above the parapet. But whereas political agendas fuel divisiveness, music unites and reminds us of all that we have in common. The message of Screwdriver is not a pessimistic one - because perhaps faced with confrontation we can find understanding, and even maybe learn how to listen to, and love one another.”
