As if we couldn’t be more excited about the new Idles album, its first track Colossus has arrived in emphatic fashion.

Fittingly, it received its radio premiere on Steve Lamacq’s BBC 6Music show today, the first taste of the band’s follow-up to their debut LP Brutalism – Live4ever’s number one album of 2017. “We’d had so much positive feedback about the first album, which should be a nudge forward, but it actually made me overthink and I started worrying about what everyone liked instead of worrying about what I liked,” frontman Joe Talbot recently told Live4ever of the new record.

“Writing’s not automatic to me, but it’s as automatic as I get. I suffer from anxiety, but I try to honestly explore what I believe in and with the second album it’s about pragmatically exploring, listening to the people around you more, in a way becoming a better person.”
