UK shoegazers The Horrors have returned with their new song, "I See You", accompanied by a lyric video and the announcement of the album Luminous, which is due May 6th via XL Recordings.
Directed by Cherise Payne, the trippy video and single reveal quite a bit about the direction they're heading in for Luminous. "I See You" borrows a blend of elements from both psychedelic rock and new wave, which is a departure from their more ominous 2011 album Skying.
When discussing their 15-month recording process with XL Recordings, lead vocalist Faris Badwan expalined:
"If you're happy with one record I think you always have those fears that you'll somehow never be able to write a good song again. But I think between us we would never allow something that we weren't happy with to be released. I can imagine it taking us 10 years to finish something - but I'd rather that than be a band who regress with each release."
In addition to the single, The Horrors have also announced the album artwork and track listing for Luminous, which you can find below. You can purchase the single for "I See You" through iTunes and Amazon. The pre-order for Luminous is available on XL Recordings and iTunes.
