The release follows a surprise for fans, as last week a performance video for ‘The Blackout’ was released, another track from the upcoming album.

Songs Of Experience is the companion release to 2014’s Songs Of Innocence, the two titles drawing inspiration from a collection of poems, ‘Songs of Innocence and Experience’, by the 18th century English mystic and poet William Blake.
