Tokyo Police Club have shared a new song, "New Blues." It's due out digitally this Friday, April 20 via Dine Alone Records. It will also be released on flexi disc on Record Store Day (this Saturday) at Dine Alone's Toronto record store, as well as on the band's tour. Details on a new album will be announced soon. Check out the song below, followed by the band's upcoming tour dates.

The band have been recording the new album with Rob Schnapf in a church in rural Ontario. Frontman Dave Monks had this to say about recording with Schnapf in a press release: "It was exciting to hear ourselves in such a big space like that, the drums ring out, the guitars blend and swirl. I think it really affected the arrangements and songwriting. We started to favor simple rhythms, slower tempos (relatively speaking) and energy over details. It was really liberating. I think 'New Blues' really shows how we thrived doing that.... I think we all felt like this was the most realized vision for an album we'd had in a while and we knew we just needed a low key recording process to bring it to life.  From day one in the studio, we kept recording all the instruments together for every take so it never felt like it was being disassembled. I think all the touring between Champ and now had left us as a much tighter band and it was fun to wield that power in the studio. Sometimes even if just Josh was doing an overdub, Graham and I would get in there and play along too. It made it feel more musical than disassembling things track by track, which is usually the norm."
