Bloc Party - Hymns - Artwork

British indie rock band BLOC PARTY has shared more details on their anticipated fifth album Hymns. The record is now set for a release on January 29 via Infectious Muisc/BMG. Find the artwork above and the full tracklisting below.

It’s the frst album since 2012’s Four and also the first one featuring new members Justin Harris (bass) and Louise Bartle (drums). For guitarist Russel Lissack the rearranged line-up also felt like a return to the band’s roots as he explains in a press statement. ‘Bloc Party started with just Kele and I, and we used to write the songs together, and we found other people and grew from that. It feels like that’s happened again.’

Kele Okereke explains the title and religious themes of the record: ‘It seemed like for me music had originated in a religious place. The first music I ever heard was hymns at school. I started to think, if I was going to make music that had a spiritual dimension, that was sacred to me and to the things that I held important, how would I do it?’

BLOC PARTY previously already shared the first single The Love Within as well as the song Exes which you can watch below.
