Mystery Jets have announced a new album for release on September 27th.

After sharing new song Hospital Radio last month, the band’s sixth studio album A Billion Heartbeats is unveiled with Screwdriver. “Screwdriver is about the mechanics of intolerance,” Blaine Harrison says.

“Looking back at times of economic instability in history, we see how easily deep chasms grow in society and the population seeks change wherever it is most convincingly promised. Conflict arises as cultures and belief systems clash, unwilling to accept one another’s place in society, because we are fed the rhetoric that our neighbours are those responsible for our problems: then inevitably nationalism once more raises its ugly head above the parapet. ”

“But whereas political agendas fuel divisiveness, music unites and reminds us of all that we have in common. The message of Screwdriver is not a pessimistic one – because perhaps faced with confrontation we can find understanding, and even maybe learn how to listen to, and love one another.”
