British Sea Power - Valhalla Dancehall

Brighton-based indie rock outfit British Sea Power is set to unveil their fifth record titled Valhalla Dancehall, due out on January 11, through Rough Trade.

This forthcoming release is the band's follow up release to 2009's soundtrack album Man of Aran, despite several parties did not consider that as their fourth album. "It was a fun title, but it also had a more serious side. The music we were recording made us want to link ourselves with people who aren't afraid to stand out. Another working title was The Interstellar Sussex Downs - a mix of the near and the far. It's our most ambitious record yet and there's a bit of a party theme - the word 'party' features a few times. Lee Perry and Odin are both there, in Valhalla where the bar stays open for eternity. Four albums in and we're finally learning to enjoy ourselves," a comment by frontman Yan.

The first video from this album features the first single Living is so Easy. Shot in London's Brick Lane, the video was directed by Luke Seomore and Joseph Bull and produced by Hannah Lack and Luke Seomore. It is inspired by iconic French director Henri-Georges Clouzot’s unfinished 1964 film L’Enfer.
