There's a new Maxïmo Park album on its way: Nature Always Wins and its details are confirmed by the band today as they release its first single proper 'Baby, Sleep'. Nature Always Wins is coming in February, with a tour to follow in June.

'Baby, Sleep' is an indie special with a head-nodding riff that 2007 would be proud of. Its accompanying video is a psychedelic continuation of last month's visuals for 'Child Of The Flatlands', which will also appear on the record.

The album was written in lockdown between the trio and a fourth member: producer Ben Allen. 

“I'm so happy we were able to make this album during lockdown, as it's been a challenging time for everyone. After almost 4 years since Risk To Exist, we wanted to explore new musical territory (for us) without sacrificing our trademark melodic twists and heartfelt lyrics," vocalist Paul Smith said of the album's making.

"Baby, Sleep is a light-hearted look at the surreal nature of sleep-deprivation, and the way it distorts normality in a capitalist society" he added.
