It has been a solid eleven years since Doves last graced us with their presence with 2009’s excellent LP Kingdom of Rust. Today on BBC 6 Music, Steve Lamacq premiered their comeback single “Carousels”. The band described the guitar shimmering track as:

“A reminiscence of times we’d go to places like North Wales on holiday as kids. Places where you had your first experience of sound systems and music being played really loud.”

Also of note is that “Carousels” features a drum sample from legendary afrobeat drummer Tony Allen.

Unfortunately news on when a new album might be dropped is still under lock and key but we can expect that info sooner rather than later.
