London’s Jungle (led by Josh Lloyd-Watson and Tom McFarland) have shared videos for two new songs, “Happy Man” and “House in LA.” They are out now digitally and will be released as a double A-side 12-inch single on June 22 via XL. Check out both videos below.

It’s been four years since Jungle’s 2014-released Mercury Prize-nominated self-titled debut album. But now they have announced some more tour dates. 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.

A press release promises that “Happy Man” and “House in LA” are the first two songs from the band’s sophomore album, which the band describe 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, their new record captures the landscapes they had so often dreamed of. To write and record the new album, J and T swapped Shepherds Bush for the Hollywood Hills. Their romanticization of The California Dream clashed with the reality of living it-although the experience led them back home to London to finish the album, the journey itself ultimately defining the music it produced.”
