Jungle have returned with their first new music of 2022 – listen to new tracks ‘Good Times’ and ‘Problemz’.

The pair of songs are Jungle‘s first new material since the release of their third studio album ‘Loving In Stereo’ last summer.

The tracks also come complete with their own videos which make up a short film, which you can watch below.

Jungle are set to tour for the rest of 2022, with dates including US shows with Gorillaz, headline shows around the States and Europe, and a headline London show as part of the South Facing festival in Crystal Palace.

Speaking to Rolling Stone UK last year for our first issue, the duo revealed how they feared returning to live shows after the pandemic.

The duo’s Josh Lloyd-Watson said the pair weren’t immediately prepared for success at their live return.

“Throughout the whole pandemic, we’ve had this fear notched up in us that things are gonna go tits up all the time, so I think we were expecting the worst,” he said.

“But to do four [O2 Academy] Brixtons within weeks of dropping our third album was just monumental. You sometimes expect London shows to be a bit reserved, but these were just amazing.”

Their third album, meanwhile, is described by Lloyd-Watson as their “most upbeat, carefree, euphoric and liberating” record to date.

“That was always the intent before the pandemic. In some ways, there is a parallel; we were making that record to be hopeful.”
