Wild Beasts are releasing a new album, Boy King, on August 5 via Domino. Previously the band had shared the video for the album's first single, "Get a Bang." Now the album's second single, and album opener, "Big Cat," has been shared via its video. Pablo Maestres directed the clip, which was filmed outside of Barcelona, Spain. It starts with a burning car and then features a group of friends on a mysterious road trip who encounter a wild, well, beast. Watch it below.

Wild Beasts' lead vocalist Hayden Thorpe commented on the song in a press release: "If 'Get My Bang' was a song of the id then 'Big Cat' is the ego. It marked a breakthrough in the writing process for the album, defining the swagger and attitude that would come to shape Boy King. He is all powerful, but at what price?"

John Congleton produced the album, which was recorded in Dallas and is the follow-up to 2014's Present Tense. A deluxe vinyl edition of the album includes a 7-inch with two bonus tracks. Wild Beasts are playing a show at Baby's All Right in Brooklyn on Aug 10th.
