Beak>, the trio led by Portishead's Geoff Barrow (along with Billy Fuller and Will Young) have announced a new album, >>>, and shared its first single, "Brean Down." >>> is due out September 21 via Invada Records/Temporary Residence Ltd. Check out "Brean Down" below, followed by the album's tracklist and cover art, as well as their upcoming tour dates. Also below is a recent video of the band performing the album's "Allé Sauvage" live at Invada Studios.

Redg Weeks, Invada's Label Manager, had this to say about the album in a press release: ">>> definitely sounds like a step forward. The production and feel of the first two albums was like listening through frosted glass; a band playing behind a curtain. Now we are hearing Beak> in sharp focus, but without forfeiting what the band see as its 'wrongness.' This could be the result of having played bigger stages and festivals - something that was never part of the plan - or perhaps it is just a reaction to the infinite cut & paste fuzz pedal kraut bands on the planet."
