Noah and the Whale announce their Last Night On Earth

Despite having only put out just two albums, Noah and the Whale have had a notable journey thus far. Their debut album, Peaceful, the World Lays Me Down, gained popularity on the back of the pop hit “5 Years Time”. Then, just a year or so later, their sophomore album, First Days Of Spring, saw the band rework their sound and add an orchestral feel after the split between lead singer Charlie Fink and girlfriend/singer Laura Marling. What the future holds for album No. 3 is still a mystery, but we’ll soon find out which way the Whale went when the band releases Last Night On Earth in March 2011 (via Clash Music).

No word yet on a particular date in March or a tracklist, but we do know that the album was recorded at a synagogue in Bethnal Green, London and in various studios throughout the Los Angeles area. Fink also said the album would be 10 songs in length and clock in at about 30 minutes total playing time, with the first single to be released the week of November 29th. If you simply can’t wait for March to hear the LP, and you just happen to live in the UK, you can see the band play several shows in January and February prior to the release, as well as in March and April after the album’s debut.

Stay tuned for more details as they’re announced. Last Night On Earth hits stores March 2011 via Young & Lost Club.
