Noah and the Whale

Indie folksters Noah and the Whale will finally bring their fourth studio LP, Heart of Nowhere to U.S. shores.

The 10-song set is out September 24 via Caroline Records. The Londoners crafted the release at West London’s British Grove Studios and it marks the follow-up to their 2011 opus, Last Night on Earth, which featured the ultra-catchy single, “L.I.F.E.G.O.E.S.O.N.” Yeah, you know it.

If you’re as geeked as we are about the new material, there’s more fun ahead, as the band will embark on an 18-date fall run of shows kicking off September 27 in Seattle. An October 22 date at Irving Plaza will conclude the tour.

For a taste of the new material, get a glimpse of “There Will Come a Time” below.

Plus, check out “Lifetime,” Noah and the Whale’s current UK single. Of the deeply reflective tune, frontman Charlie Fink revealed in a press statement, “It’s looking back on that period of life, on adolescence. ‘Lifetime’ was a reminder for me that I spend so much time on the road, and so much time away from London, that when my friend said he was getting married I became aware of how much I had drifted from my friends, and how little I knew what was going on in anyone’s lives.”
