Dan and Tørd from The Wombats have announced their debut Sunship Balloon album

Daniel Haggis and Tord Øverland Knudsen from The Wombats have been hard at work on their own album.

While Murph's been off releasing his own solo endeavour Love Fame Tragedy, Daniel and Tord have been writing and recording their debut Sunship Balloon record, 'Everywhen'.

Arriving on 18th September, the full-length was mixed by John Congleton (Angel Olsen, St. Vincent), and follows on from last year's EP, 'Intergalactic Teacup Travel Centre'.

Speaking about warm-and-woozy teaser single 'A4 Life', Daniel says: "A4 Life came from the Norwegian phrase 'Et A4 liv' that Tord said in the studio once describing that ‘Happy (or indeed Unhappy) Groundhog Day’ feeling we all get after being in a long relationship or seeing the same bad news on the TV year after year.

"I loved the imagery of a huge stack of A4 paper representing every day feeling identical and started writing around that idea. I thought about the phrase and wondered whether we are destined to repeat mistakes and continuously fall into the same traps. People often think changing their partners or moving to a new city will fix their boredom or sadness and while it can help distract for a little while, eventually you end up back in a similar place and the cycle recommences. It's about accepting that a lot of our problems are actually in our own heads."

Check it out below.
