Idles share new song ‘Grace’

As they build towards the February release of their eagerly anticipated new album ‘TANGK’, the irrepressible IDLES share the new single “Grace”. 

“The song came from nowhere and everything. It was a breath and a call to be held,” says Joe Talbot, “The only words or singing that came from our sessions with Nigel and I needed it, truly. All is love.” 

“Grace” is a relatively slowburner by IDLES’ standards, as it takes the time to amplify the tension before detonating with a life-affirming crescendo. “No god, no king, I said love is the thing,” sings Joe Talbot, delivering IDLES’ new manifesto of love triumphing over nihilism with arguably his most soulful (yet still slightly menacing) vocal to date. As with the rest of the upcoming album, “Grace” was produced by Nigel Godrich (Radiohead, The Smile, Beck), Kenny Beats (Denzel Curry, Vince Staples, Benee) and the band’s Mark Bowen.

Extending an explosive run of unerringly stirring albums, ‘TANGK’ is this band’s most ambitious and striking record yet. Set to be released via Partisan Records, it follows IDLES’ 2021 album ‘CRAWLER’ which led to their first two GRAMMY Award nominations.

As they began to lay the groundwork for ‘TANGK’, “Dancer” announced IDLES’ return in style, a track which blended their kinetic intensity with a new-found lascivious playfulness and was further spotlighted with guest backing vocals from LCD Soundsystem duo James Murphy and Nancy Whang.

Additionally, IDLES’ 2024 world tour has kept on expanding, including a newly announced North American tour, plus UK tour legs in July and then November / December.

Fans who pre-order the band’s upcoming album ‘TANGK’ HERE will receive access to a pre-sale for tour tickets. Remaining tickets will then go on general sale from 9:00am local time on Friday, 8th December. See all tour dates below and visit Idlesband.com for more information.
