La Petite Mort will be released on the 2nd of June via BMG Chrysalis and Cooking Vinyl.
The album was produced by Max Dingel (The Killers, Muse) and follows James’ 10th studio album Hey Ma, which was released in 2008, and 2010’s EPs The Night Before and The Morning After. La Petite Mort was written by the band’s frontman Tim Booth after the deaths of his mother and best friend.
The album will feature the single ‘Moving On’ and ‘Frozen Britain’, both of which can watch and listen to below.
The release will be supported by a sold out Summer in the City gig at Manchester’s Castlefield Bowl on July 11 with special guests Starsailor, and a set at Camp Bestival on August 1. The band are also due to announce a UK arena tour.
