English Teacher have announced their debut album ‘This Could Be Texas’ and shared new single ‘Albert Road’.

The Leeds four-piece will release their first LP on April 12 via Island, and the new song is the latest taste of it – following a string of releases last year.

Describing the album, vocalist Lily Fontaine said: “I want this album to feel like you’ve gone to space and it turns out it’s almost identical to Doncaster. It’s about inbetweens, it’s about home, and it’s about Desire Paths.”

The band are set to head out on a new UK headline tour across May, which follows on from their January and February tour which kicks off later this month.

Describing their sound, Fontaine previously told Rolling Stone UK: “Since we released ‘R&B’, we’ve been deciding what kind of music we want to make and every song we’ve written, we’ve come at it from a perspective of wondering what would be a cool sound. Our album shows that too and that’ll come when people hear it in the future. Post punk is definitely something we fit into, but it’s just such a broad term that doesn’t always apply to us.”
