    The Cribs are set to release their first album since 2009! It's their first time recording as a three-piece since 2007.

    Some other crucial details? Well, the album's working title is 'In the Belly of the Brazen Bull and it has been produced by Dave Fridmann (Mercury Rev, The Flaming Lips, MGMT) in New York, as well as Steve Albini (Nirvana, The Stooges, Jarvis Cocker) in Chicago and there was also a self-produced batch in London's Abbey Road. So it's truly a global album.

    The Cribs' Ryan Jarman of the band spoke to NME about working (at one time and no longer) with Johnny Marr, late of The Smiths, who split with The Cribs last year. He said, "Working with Johnny was something I really enjoyed, but what it's made me realize is that this is the way it's meant to be. I liked the last record and it was a progression, but there was something lost in translation. It was something indefinable – but it's back."

    Are you psyched to hear new tunes from The Cribs?
