Very exciting, very official. The new album cover for Ladytron has been unveiled on their official website (which you can see to the left…very Milano Chow, yes?), as well as a complete list of tour dates (which you can find under the “read more” cut below), and most importantly…the lead track from their upcoming album Velocifero! You can download the new song below. It’s out of this fucking world–I kid you not. The fattest bass in the world coupled with a real punched up, crashing beat. The vocals don’t kick in until two minutes in, but when they do, it proves that this is true Ladytron stuff. In terms of atmosphere, this style is a bit less ghoulish and a bit more processed and layered. Though the song doesn’t take off from where it begins necessarily, it operates as the perfect kind of album opener. I see this as another marker of success for Ladytron, who only seem to evolve their sound with each album. And it’s just so fucking cool sounding!

Be sure to pre-order the album here so that you can get the super sexy 7″ single of their song, “Ghosts” before June 3rd. I can’t wait for more!
