Glass Animals today announce their highly anticipated new album, ‘How To Be A Human Being’ released via Caroline International / Wolf Tone on26th August which is available to pre order now. This coincides with the reveal of the new video for Life Itself,which is the first single to be taken from the album.

The band have also announced a UK & Ireland tour for October, which will include London’s Roundhouse on 25th, the band’s biggest UK headline gig to date.

Unveiled in mid May as Annie Mac’s Hottest Record, ‘Life Itself’has already elevated the band’s sonorous buzz to a whole new level. The track is an immersive, exotic and characteristically off­kilter earworm, reintroducing the band in the wake of their sensational ascent into a force to be reckoned with.Dave makes a point of not listening to his contemporaries when making music, preferring to look inwards to the world Glass Animals have built. In crafting this record, his thoughts returned to one factor he couldn’t even dream of on ‘Zaba’ ­ the huge live audiences they’d been drawing. “You sense what the crowds react to: big drums, bass, high tempo.”

Glass Animals’ debut ‘Zaba’, released on Paul Epworth’s label Wolf Tone, has so far sold nearly half a million copies worldwide and amassed a staggering 200 million Spotify streams, obliterating all expectations simply by word of mouth. Their anomalous rise has gained the Oxford four­piece a legion of fans all over the world, including festival appearances at the likes of Falls in Australia, Coachella, Bonnaroo, Lollapalooza, Glastonbury and has resulted in the band playing 2 sold out headline shows at LA’s 2000­capacity Wiltern and NYC’s 3000­capacity Terminal 5.
