'There Is No Year' is preceded by lead track 'Dispossession'

Algiers have announced details of their third album, There Is No Year. Above, you can hear lead track 'Dispossession'.

"The spectre of dispossession is haunting us all," says the band's Ryan Mahan of the themes explored on the track. "Everywhere the imperial world represses the ghoulish histories that sustain our pasts, presents and futures."

The album's announcement follows in the wake of 'Can the Sub Bass Speak?', an online audiovisual installation piece that the band launched earlier this year.

There Is No Year is due out via Matador on January 17, 2020. The band will follow its release with a tour of the UK and Europe in February. Find the full list of dates here.
