Editors have revealed a new song, 'Marching Orders', from their forthcoming album - along with its accompanying video. Watch it below.

The song follows previous single 'No Harm' (which 'leaked' via a hidden track on a Play It Again Sam label sampler), and is taken from their currently untitled fifth album - the follow-up to 2013's The Weight Of Your Love.

The song's musical starkness is reflected in its video, which was directed and edited by Rahi Rezvani and features cold, industrial warehouses, black clothes and white paint.

The single will be initially released in the form of 300 hand stamped 12" test pressings, which will be randomly placed and sold in selected Oxfam stores in the UK, Germany and Belgium.

Speaking of this, Tom Smith said, "We've been supporters of Oxfam's amazing, vital work for many years, from supporting their Oxfam unwrapped campaign back in Xmas 2007, performing at Oxjam gigs and also hosting Oxfam campaigners on our tours to help raise funds and spread the word about the charity with our fans."

Editors will embark on a full UK tour in October, which includes a show at London's Hammersmith Apollo, as well as gigs in Manchester, Portsmouth, Birstol, Leeds, Newcastle and more. Full tour dates are below. For tickets and more information, click here.
