The Specials have shared a new track called 'Vote For Me', which will feature on their first album of new material in 37 years. You can hear the track via the embed below.

'Vote For Me' is the first new single from the group since 1981's 'Ghost Town', while the new album - titled Encore - will be released in a year that marks 40 years since the formation of the band. The new track was written and produced by founding members Terry Hall, Lynval Golding and Horace Panter alongside longtime collaborator Torp Larsen. It addresses various social and political issues that have been the target of past tracks by the group.

Encore is out on February 1, and the band is set to tour through next year in support of the record as well as to mark their 40th anniversary.
