Underworld are going to release their first studio album in six years next month!

Here's a teaser:

Excited for this new material, I'm enjoying 'I Exhale' quite a bit. Planning to listen to all the other albums I haven't heard yet as well. Never been exactly HUGE on them, but do enjoy their sound and vibe.

01 I Exhale
02 If Rah
03 Low Burn
04 Santiago Cuatro
05 Motorhome
06 Ova Nova
07 Nylon Strung

I've had this on repeat all week, and I definitely feel this is their best album since Second Toughest In The Infants, way back in '96, and it seems to be getting some of their best reviews since then too.

Not that there's a fair deal wrong with most of the albums since then, of course (I love Beaucoup Fish and Oblivion with Bells; and like a fair amount of A Hundred Days Off) but what makes 'Barbara Barbara...' so good is that it's such a massive improvement over Barking, and by listening to parts of this record, you can tell Karl Hyde has been working with Brian Eno (their two collaboration albums on Warp from 2014 are rather good).

I've been on a bit of an Underworld binge of late and I'd agree that this is their strongest album in a while, it's a very coherent listen and sounds suitably like a more grown up version of the Underworld style of the mid 90s. I love Nylon Strung and Low Burn in particular.

Really enjoying the new single “Nylon Strung” at the moment.
