It’s influenced by “dance, trance and ‘80s pop genres”.

The Horrors have announced that they will release their fifth album ‘V’ on September 22. Faris Badwan and co. have already trailed the album with lead single ‘Machine’. Now they have revealed that the album will feature a “diverse” range of songs drawing from “dance, trance and ‘80s pop genres”. “It is a risk,” Badwan says of the band’s new direction. “But life isn’t much fun without risk. It’s the antithesis of being creative if you know what you’re going to be doing every time.” Bandmate Tom Cowan adds: “It’s natural, if you do see yourself as an artist, to progress and not play it safe. Bowie pre-empted the modern condition of not being able to stay in one place for very long, and I get frustrated with bands who stay still. Because then it does become a career.”

Check out the album’s tracklist below.

1. ‘Hologram’
2. ‘Press Enter To Exit’
3. ‘Machine’
4. ‘Ghost’
5. ‘Two Way Mirror’
