It's destination dancefloor for Friendly Fires with their latest offering, 'Lack Of Love'

Friendly Fires have shared a new track.

'Lack Of Love' isn't a Brand New Banger from the dancetastic trio, but rather a cover version of a song which holds a special place for the band.

"'Lack Of Love' by Charles B & Adonis has been hovering in & around the top of the charts in FF land for over 12 yrs," they explain. "It was an important tune for us when we started the band, and its an important tune for us now. "

"It squelches and fizzes and yearns and emotes – it's a piece of secular gospel music that bangs the dance floor, and will do eternally."

"We wanted to cover one of our all time favourites as a little palate-cleansing exercise; try and make it faithful to the original but also carry off into somewhere new. Thanks to Adonis & Charles B for making the original all those years ago, it continues to inspire us."

Their take on the track sees the band in fine form, continuing a comeback that has their forthcoming album - which we're expecting later this year - near the top of our must hear lists.

A nocturnal treat, you can check out 'Lack Of Love' below.
