Bloc Party are currently working on their third album, which is due out later this year. Or knowing Bloc Party, right at the start of next year, so come year-end when people make their Best Of lists, they’re forgotten about. The follow-up to A Weekend In The City and their superb debut Silent Alarm, does not yet have a title, but will be produced by Jacknife Lee and Paul Epworth.
Singer Kele Okereke said of the album: “It doesn’t sound like anything we’ve done before and I’m really excited about it” Hopefully it won’t sound like A Weekend in the City, because that album was a massive letdown.
You can see for yourself what one part of it sounds like anyway, as lead single ‘Mercury’ is now available for your viewing pleasure, and is due to be released August 11th.
