Legendary Irish folk-rock band The Frames return this month with the announcement of their new album Longitude. This will be The Frames first album in almost nine years.

“This is a collection of songs from throughout the twenty five years we’ve been a band,” The Frames explained in a statement. “We initially wanted to mark this anniversary with a sort of Best of The Frames. We put together a few different versions, including a certain number of songs from each record and including more popular live and radio songs – but this felt forced and incongruous. After many conversations amongst ourselves we decided it should simply be a collection of our favourite tunes, songs we would be happy to put on a mix-tape for a friend. So, here it is, with no regard to what album is most or least represented. It’s a short collection of tunes we are proud of, some in slightly different versions from the original recordings, and one new song. This is not the sum of our career but maybe some of the songs where we felt we had broken through to a new place or gotten better as a band. We hope you like it….we hope you enjoy it.”

Longitude is due for release on the 26th June. The first track from the album, “None But I”, is already streaming on the band’s website. Check out the full tracklisting below:
