Razorlight have released four new songs in anticipation of their comeback album, Olympus Sleeping, which is set for release on Oct. 26.

Described by frontman Jimmy Borrell as "a love letter to rock and roll" (via NME), the upcoming release will be the band's first since 2008's Slipway Fires.

The new tracks, "Olympus Sleeping," "Japanrock," "Sorry" and "Got To Let The Good Times Back Into Your Life" can be found below. The band has also announced a U.K. tour for the tail end of 2018.

"With Razorlight I only started writing songs because I found it very difficult to talk to people," Borrell told NME. "I worked out that if I could sing things then I might be able to communicate with people in some way."
