British trio Younghusband have released a new album, Swimmers, today via Opposite Number. Now that the album is out, you can stream the whole thing below. Also below are their upcoming tour dates.

Previously they shared its first single and opening track, “Translation,” which was one of our Songs of the Week. Then we premiered the album’s second single, “Modern Lie,” which was also one of our Songs of the Week.

Swimmers is the band’s third album, the follow-up to 2015’s Dissolver. Singer/guitarist Euan Hinshelwood set up a studio in a barn in Greenwich, England, which is where Swimmers was recorded.

In a previous press release Hinshelwood had this to say about recording the album: “I didn’t play the songs to the guys before. For the majority of the record the band had only heard the songs on the day of recording them. We then went over the top of those bare bones but at the core of it I wanted to get something loose and gritty.”

Hinshelwood also had this to say about Swimmers: “There were so many things we liked and disliked about our first two records. We thought we’d try and find a middle ground. I wanted to bring us back to that place between the first and second record but with more confidence in songwriting. Maybe being a bit more extreme - a bit more emotional extremity and openness.”
