Django Django have announced their third album via an article in the British music magazine Mojo, which the band shared on Instagram. The album is titled Marble Skies, although there is some confusion as to when it's due out (the text of the article says October, but a sidebar says it's not due until January 2018). The album features Slow Club's Rebecca Taylor singing lead vocals on "Surface to Air" and Metronomy's Anna Prior filled in for drummer/producer David Maclean while he took a break from the band for three months due to exhaustion and "unspecified personal problems." Miami Vice composer Jan Hammer is also featured, kind of. Keyboardist Tommy Grace re-performed a piano part from "The Seventh Day" (from Hammer's 1975 album First Seven Days). Hammer objected, saying Grace hadn't played it correctly, but eventually relented. Check out the Instagram post and article below.

Marble Skies is the follow-up to the band's 2015 sophomore album, Born Under Saturn, and their 2012-released Mercury Prize-nominated self-titled debut.
