Mosshart appears on several tracks off the album, including lead single ‘Broken Talk’, which you can listen to below. Other musicians that feature on the record include Big Pink’s Robbie Furze, Japanese guitarist Hotei and German singer Herbert Grönemeyer.
It will be Gang Of Four’s first release since 2011’s ‘Content’, and the first since the departure of frontman Jon King, who has since been replaced by former Gaoler’s Daughter frontman John Sterry.
The current lineup features Thomas McNiece on bass and Jonny Finnegan on drums, with additional contributions on the album from previous drummer Mark Heaney
“The focus is more on universal issues, like how individuals behave in certain ways or how our world is constructed, than local issues or current affairs,” said Gill.
“Gang of Four is anything but parochial.”
