IDLES announce new live album recorded from Paris

The Bristol five-piece have confirmed that a new album is on the way.

Entitled A Beautiful Thing: IDLES Live at Le Bataclan, the live album is due to arrive on 6 December via Partisan Records. The LP was recorded from the group’s performance in Paris and will arrive as a limited edition double LP, available in three different colours, and with a booklet designed by frontman Joe Talbot.

On the upcoming release Talbot said, “Our show at Bataclan was the end of a very long journey for us. On that tour we learnt so much about ourselves, each other and the audiences we have grown with over the past 10 years.”

“That show was nothing short of catharsis and nothing more than love. We love what we do and the people who have carried us here, there was no hiding that at Bataclan and we are so very grateful that the moment was captured in all its glory, love and fatigue. Long live the open minded and long live the moment.”

Furthermore, the band have shared the live version of Mother. Listen to it via the player above, and pre-order the LP here.
