‘Listen’ will be the Brighton indie band’s fourth studio album, and is to be released on 1 September on Virgin
righton-based indie outfit The Kooks have announced details of their next album. Listen will be the band’s fourth long-player, their first since 2011’s Junk Of The Heart, and the first to feature new drummer Alexis Nunez. Recorded in Los Angeles and London, the album has been produced by Kooks singer/guitarist Luke Pritchard along with hip-hop producer Inflo.
Speaking to Clash magazine, Pritchard said: “With this record we didn’t do any rehearsing beforehand. I’d write a song with Inflo or on my own, put it up and we’d all play over it. There was a real freedom to the process. To me this album is about pure expression.”

Forgive & Forget
See Me Now
It Was London
Are We Electric
