Villagers are back with their first new video since 2010. 'The Waves', directed by Alden Volney, will likely feature on the band's upcoming second album which should see the light of day before the end of the year.

The song features a more electronic identity compared to anything on the first Villagers album Becoming A Jackal and will be released on October 19th next.

Speaking of song, Conor O'Brien said: "I was looking up at the sky on a particularly clear night and it struck me that I had never written a song about those little moments when you feel a fundamental and awesome sense of wonder and a simultaneously humbling recognition of absolute insignificance."

Villagers will play Electric Picnic this Saturday at 8.45pm in the Electric Arena tent, before touring later this Autumn across the UK and Europe with Grizzly Bear.
