The album - which is set for release on 27 April 2018 - is the follow up to their UK No.1 self-titled debut, which included hits such as Charlemagne and Blown Rose. 

Speaking to Radio X's Gordon Smart about the difference between their first and second album, frontman Tom Ogden said: "We think it's more of an accomplished body of songs and it sounds more like a whole album, whereas the first one was like singles built up over three and a half years."

Watch our video above.

On Cool Like You's "soundtracky" new sound, he added: "It's a lot more upbeat this album. We consciously did that with the songs, because we wanted to take the live set up a level."

Today also sees the Stockport five-piece release their comeback single in I Can't Stand It, which was played tonight on Radio X.
