Will says of the single: “‘Tambourine’ was the first song we started working on as a band. It was written one summer when lots of people I knew were entering their thirties - a friend described their Dad as a ‘human tambourine’ and it all found its way into that song. It’s two minutes long, the most succinct and direct thing we’ve put out yet.”

The album, which is available to pre-order and pre-save here, consists of 14 tracks in total and includes previously released tracks Worn Out Buildings and Higher Love.

In addition to its digital release, the record will also be available on vinyl and CD. The band’s official store also offers an exclusive vinyl format which will be packaged with a bonus 7” single featuring three bonus tracks.

86TVs previously credited their drummer Jamie Morrison for making them move forward as a band.

The brothers of the four-piece were making music for a number of years, but have described the former Noisettes and Stereophonics drummer as the missing piece of the puzzle.

Hugo explained: "The three of us making music together was always something we wanted to do, but I think the dynamic of actually being able to do that together in a room and the thing of Jamie arriving and becoming part of it just suddenly allowed us to share songs together and the dynamic to work and from that it started to happen and it became a thing."

Felix added: "I have to say for Jamie, the vision he showed in it from the beginning, his belief that he wanted to be part of it and put his time in it was enough for us to be like, 'OK . Let's make this album."

The 86TVs talk forming & drummer Jamie Morrison's positivity

"We'd come in some days and Jamie would be like,'We're making an incredible album," interjected younger brother Will. "And we'd all just be like, 'What are you on about?'"

Felix joked: "Then two minutes later, he'd be like: 'You've made an incredible cup of tea'."

"It is natural," Jamie said of his positivity. "It's something that's unstoppable. It comes out of me and I have to say something.

"Even to strangers, you know, if I think someone has done something great I'll go out of my way to make a point of saying that, because I feel like it can be hard out there, you know. And sometimes just hearing someone say that 'I think that's brilliant' It can really change the course of a destination."
