Bloc Party have spent the year promoting their fifth studio album release 'Hymns', which they launched in January 2016 through BMG records. They've had huge shows at the Hollywood Bowl, Lollapalooza and The Governors Ball, and despite the fact that the year isn't even out they are already dropping new material, the first of which is new single 'Stunt Queen'. The video for the track has been directed by Rachael Wright, and features footage from their recent touring adventures.
'Smalls Change (Meditations Upon Ageing)' arrives in April.
The two awards have made for a great 72nd birthday present for the country music icon.
