IDLES have released the latest single from their upcoming album Ultra Mono, entitled A Hymn. Take a look at its accompanying music video above.

The song follows the previous releases of Grounds and Mr Motivator. Mr Motivator was released before Ultra Mono was confirmed, which happened in June via a rather cryptic teaser. The 12-track record will be released 25 September through Partisan.

The album was produced by Nick Launay (Nick Cave, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Arcade Fire) and Adam ‘Atom’ Greenspan (Anna Calvi, Cut Copy), with additional programming provided by Kenny Beats. Savages frontwoman Jehnny Beth will also feature on the track Ne Touche Pas Moi.

The band’s first two full-length records, Brutalism and Joy As An Act Of Resistance launched them into critical success. Both of them addressed issues such as mental health, toxic masculinity, the value of the UK’s national health service, and Britain’s deeply rooted class system. The existence of a third album was confirmed last year, with IDLES debuting Grounds across their December UK tour.
