The Blinders have announced their second album with a brand new single titled 'Circle Song'. The Manchester-based livewires have cut all of the fuzz and taken off the theatre makeup for their re-introduction, sounding more like a mellowed out, more mature version of their previous selves. Fantasies Of A Stay At Home Psychopath arrives May 8 via Modern Sky.

'Circle Song' drips with passionate rock 'n' roll heart, a slow doo-wop rhythm carrying the band along a ponderous lyrical journey that parallels some of Alex Turner's work. The production is spot on, with a definite analogue feel around the swooning tune.

Hear it and see the video:

Different, right?
