Bloc Party’s comeback album ‘Four‘ is available to stream online on four.blocparty.com, ahead of its official release date. The album is set for release on August 20th. The Band has already revealed two tracks from the album, titled ‘Day Four’ and ‘Octopus’. Listen to these tracks below.
Frontman Kele Okereke admitted that recording sessions for the new material were "slightly nerve-wracking". He told Digital Spy "If you haven't interacted with human beings for a while you don't know how it's going to feel. It all came back very naturally”. He added "I think if we'd made another record after Intimacy it would have been quite a poisonous head space for us all. Having time out was the best thing we could have done”.
