Young Fathers have announced details of new album Heavy Heavy. Due on February 3, 2023 via Ninja Tune, it’s the group’s fourth album and their first since 2018’s album Cocoa Sugar. The album features the previously released "Geronimo" plus new song "I Saw," which is streaming below.


In a statement the band said of the new song: “It’s a big bully with shite down their leg, still swaggering. That pamphlet through your door blaming the establishment and immigrants for everything going wrong. The stench of long-dead empire, trudging along, a psychological hammer to your head in every step. The delusion.”


Alongside the announcement of Heavy Heavy, Young Fathers have also confirmed details of a U.K. and European tour for 2023. The tour will include shows in London, Paris, Amsterdam, Antwerp, Hamburg and more. See below for venue and date details.
