London's Jungle (led by Josh Lloyd-Watson and Tom McFarland) are releasing a new album, For Ever, this Friday (September 14) via XL. Now they have shared another song from it, the funky "Beat 54 (All Good Now)." Check it out below, followed by their upcoming tour dates.

When the album was announced they shared two new songs from it, "Cherry" and "Heavy, California" (which made our Songs of the Week list). For Ever also includes "Happy Man" and "House in LA," two songs the band shared back in May and released as a double A-side 12-inch single in June (they also both made our Songs of the Week list).

It's been four years since Jungle's 2014-released Mercury Prize-nominated self-titled debut album. The band performed "House in LA" on Last Call with Carson Daly, filmed during the band's performance at the El Rey Theater in Los Angeles in December but broadcast in February.

The band describe For Ever as "a post-apocalyptic radio station playing break up songs." 

The band moved to Hollywood to work on the album, but ended up finishing it back in London. As the press release explains: "If Jungle's first album was their imaginary soundtrack to the places they had never been, For Ever is inspired by real life experiences of the places they'd dreamed of for so long. Swapping Shepherds Bush for the Hollywood Hills, J and T set up camp in Los Angeles to write and record the album. Over time however, their romanticization of The Californian Dream clashed with the reality of actually living it, the feeling of being adrift on the West Coast compounded by the collapse of long-term relationships."

They finished the album in London with the producer Inflo.
