The Sherlocks have announced details of a new album and shared the track ‘City Lights’.

‘World I Understand’, the follow up 2019’s ‘Under Your Sky’, will be the band’s first without founding members Josh and Andy Davidson following their departure in March 2020. Guitarist Alex Proctor and bassist Trent Jackson have since replaced the pair.

The album was produced by Dave Eringa who has previously worked with Manic Street Preachers and releases on November 19 via TeddyBoy Records. You can pre-order the LP here.

The band have also shared new track ‘City Lights’, which you can listen to below. It follows comeback single ‘End Of The Earth’.

Speaking about the record, frontman Kiaran Crook said: “We pulled up at Rockfield Studios in Wales with only a handful of practices together and a bunch of songs that felt strong but were certainly rough around the edges. But once we started, I knew we were onto something special.

“Part of the magic of this record is that even though Brandon [Crook, the drummer] and I arrived to make our third album, Trent and Alex were making their debut record. Their passion was infectious, and we were getting the songs down at such a rapid pace. Everyone playing out of their skin!”

The full tracklisting for ‘World I Understand’ is as follows:

‘Porto’
‘Falling’
‘Wake Up’
‘On The Run’
‘Plastic Heart’
‘City Lights’
‘Sorry’
‘Games You Play’
‘World I Understand’
