IDLES have returned with the release of their new single, ‘Mr. Motivator’.

An unadulterated, no-holds-barred, battering-ram, the track gives us an inkling as to what we can come to expect when they release their highly anticipated third album set for release later this year.

“We want to start this journey with a means to not only encapsulate the album’s sentiment, but to encourage our audience to dance like no one is watching and plough through these dark times with a two tonne machete of a song,” said frontman, Joe Talbot.

The track doubles down on the (self-admitted) sloganeering and social commentary that’s become the band’s differentia.

The band also released a self-directed music video, featuring some fans exercise footage, as well members of the band themselves. You can view this below.
