Kasabian Announce 'Stripped Back' New Album, '48:13,' Stream New Single 'Eez-Eh'
Kasabian have announced details of their new album "48:13," NME reports.

The band's fifth album – due for release on June 9 – is named for its running time, which is a total of 48 minutes and 13 seconds. The first single from the album, "Eez-Eh," will be released on June 2 and currently available for streaming - listen below.

Guitarist Sergio Pizzorno, who wrote and produced the album, said in a statement: "I felt that we had the confidence to be more direct, more honest with this album. I started to strip away layers rather than to just keep adding."

Frontman Tom Meighan added: "Less is more, you know? It's direct. It is what it is. Just listen to it. We've had the confidence to lay ourselves bare. Serge has stripped it right back. It's unbelievable."

The band debuted "Eez-Eh" on Zane Lowe's BBC Radio 1 show. "This is a special year ... the time is right, things keep on falling into place," said Tom Meighan of the band to Lowe, with Serge Pizzorno adding: "It's just a whole lot of fun."

Kasabian will headline this year's Glastonbury Festival alongside Arcade Fire and an unnamed third headliner. It was announced that the band will also headline the In New Music We Trust stage at BBC Radio 1's One Big Weekend in Glasgow Green.
