Check it out and find the album artwork (by multi-disciplinary artists Rottingdean Bazaar and photographer Annie Collinge) and tracklist below.

In a statement, vocalist Florence Shaw explained that ‘Don’t Press Me’ is a song about the  “pleasure of gaming and the enjoyment of intense and short-lived guilt-free experiences.” She added: “The words in the chorus came about because I was trying to write a song to sing to my own brain, ‘You are always fighting me/ You are always stressing me out’.”
