Here come the Doves

It’s always good news when Doves come back. The band has just announced their fourth album, ‘Kingdom Of Rust’, which is due out 6th April.

New track ‘Jetstream’ – available for free download from – sees Doves ‘going electronic’, as bands very often do when they hit their ‘mid-career crisis’. As comeback singles go, it’s no ‘There Goes The Fear’ or ‘Black and White Town’ but represents an interesting New Order-esque new direction.

Let’s see if they can do what fellow Mancuians Elbow did last last year and break through to a wider audience with their fourth record.
