It feels like a lifetime since we last heard any new music from legendary Danish outfit Mew. But during their headline performance at 2013’s Ja Ja Ja Festival, they unveiled tantalising glimmers of new material to look forward to before revealing that original band member Johan Wohlert would return to the line up for the recording of said new material. And now, at long last, the wait for the latest ‘comforting sounds’ from one of Denmark’s most iconic bands has finally come to an end.
Mew have unveiled a track entitled ‘Satellites’ – the first cut to appear from their upcoming third album +- which will be released on the 27th April 2015. Along with news of the new record, the band have also revealed a handful of tour dates– which will see a welcome return to the Roundhouse in London, as well as a special appearance at Lido in Germany.
