Wild Beasts have announced the May 9 release of Smother, which will be their third, studio album. They've also provided the first single of the album, "Albatross". The band is best known for the vocal prowess of band members Haden Thorpe and Tom Fleming. Their powerful operatic voices are interchangeable in excellence yet differ in tone.

"Albatross", is similar to tracks on previous albums, Limbo, Panto and Two Dancers, as it is highlighted by Thorpe's mesmerizing vocals. There are faint instances of Fleming's deeper range that contributes a masculine foundation beneath the gently flowing, piano keys.

Where does this dude get off sounding like Thom Yorke?! [Ed. Note: With a bass-line that sounds right out of "All I Need"?]
