Hip-hop icons Public Enemy have 'done a Beyoncé' by announcing the release of their new album just hours before it goes on sale.

Chuck D, Flava Flav et al have released their 15th studio album 'Man Plans God Laughs' via their own online record store today, while CD and vinyl formats will be out on July 25th. The album is also streaming exclusively on Spotify.

The album is the follow-up to 2012's 'The Evil Empire of Everything' and is a "commentary on the 21st century in this technological - yet highly political - world", as Chuck D told Maxim magazine.
