London’s Jungle (led by Josh Lloyd-Watson and Tom McFarland) have announced a new album, For Ever, and shared two new songs from it, “Cherry” and “Heavy, California.” For Ever is due out September 14 via XL. It 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 made our Songs of the Week list). Listen to “Cherry” and “Heavy, California” below, followed by the album’s tracklist and cover art. They have also announced some tour dates, which are below too.

“Heavy, California” also has a video, but it’s currently a Spotify exclusive and can be watched there. The same goes for “Cherry,” except that video is an Apple Music exclusive and can be watched there. Below is a trailer for the album.

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.
