Gang of Youths have so far released three new songs (and an Elbow cover) this year, and now they've released a fourth new song and finally announced their anticipated new album, angel in real time, due February 25 via Warner (pre-order). "The album is about the life and legacy of Dave Le’aupepe’s father, indigenous identity, death, grief and God," the band says. "And also the Angel, Islington." Dave adds, "I hope the record stands as a monument to the man my father was and remains long after I’m gone myself. He deserved it."

The new single is "tend the garden," a propulsive, polyrhythmic song that injects a bit of a sophisti-pop/yacht rock vibe into their sound, but still in an unmistakably Gang of Youths way. This song was also inspired by Dave's father, as he explains, "My dad was a gifted and passionate gardener. It's where he funnelled a lot of his energy and sensitivity, and despite our humble surroundings, we were always surrounded by beauty. The journey he made from Samoa to NZ to Australia was a difficult and inspiring one, but also fraught with mistakes, regret and terrible choices. I like to think he was building something beautiful, and pondering what life had given him in spite of his mistakes and concealment. We never knew his story until after he died, so this is the most poetic interpretation of his affinity for gardening that I could think of." Listen below.

Gang of Youths have also announced a lengthy North American tour for April and May, with another run happening here in September. Tickets for all dates go on sale Friday, November 19 at 10 AM local time, and fans who pre-order the album from the band's official store get access to a presale that starts Wednesday, November 17 at 10 AM local.

All dates -- including NYC's Brooklyn Steel on May 10 and LA's Belasco Theater on May 18 -- are listed below.
