Out in March, the record sees the duo collaborate with Jane's Addiction's Perry Farrell and Dave Navarro

Sleaford Mods have a new album on the way.

Spanning 14 tracks, UK GRIM is described in a press release as the Nottingham duo's "most dance floor-friendly release to date." It sees them build on the outrightly political and social themes of previous releases, and also includes contributions from Jane's Addiction's Perry Farrell and Dave Navarro, as well as Dry Cleaning vocalist Florence Shaw. You can watch a video for the album's title track, directed by satirist Cold War Steve, above.

In a statement about the theme explored on the record, the duo's Jason Williamson said: "Maybe we are proud of the country. Maybe we are proud to be English. Maybe I'm proud of the horrible grey streets and the shit weather and the stupid fashions I find myself investing in. It's just that the English we're proud of being is absolutely nothing like the English the authorities want to try and promote."

Rough Trade will release UK GRIM on March 10, 2023.
