The Editors have a  new album and have previewed the track  “Life Is A Fear” The video. Conceived, directed and edited by Rahi Rezvani. Taken from new album titled ‘IN DREAM’ to be released October 2nd: Tom Smith commented our new record is called In Dream, it’s out in October. Our last record was the sound of us learning to walk again, with new legs! In Dream, our first self produced album, is us diving into the computer, a real studio record, made in isolation by the 5 of us. Can’t wait for you all to hear it

Editors frontman Tom Smith, the driving concept for his band’s forthcoming album, In Dream is to make a record that reflects his acts inclinations toward the disparate worlds of “both pop and experimental.” Today they’re sharing a brand new track, “The Law,” which accomplishes that goal by prudently enlisting Slowdives  legendary vocalist, Rachel Goswell as an airy complement to the track’s earthbound instrumentation.

Smith says that this new track is “as close to ‘I Got You Babe’ as [they] are ever gonna get,” which seems absurd when you hear the track immediately initiate shrill, deformed steel drums, and then the unvarnished truth when you begin to understand the call-and-response tenderness between Smith and Goswell’s vocals. The harsh, almost no-wave synth lines and percussion transition easily into a deep, but scratchy bass line. That throatiness is matched by Smith’s deep brooding questions: “What are you drinking/Can I get some?” Smith’s miserable character is then saved by Goswell’s signature dream-pop hush which advises him not to “let it get heavy.”
