Digitalism are back with a new album in May, their third in five years.

'Mirage' is out on Magnetism Recordings Co. on May 13 and the German duo have announced it by sharing two tracks; 'Battlecry' and 'Utopia', which is Pete Tong's Essential New Tune.

The album's press release explains this record is "their most complete and coherent incarnation yet; the album spanning euphoric radio-friendly electronic pop and guttural dancefloor bangers with equal aplomb."

Jens 'Jence' Moelle adds: "It’s a soundtrack to our own world, but so vaguely put again that other people can identify with it, or come up with their own analyses. It’s meant to be something fantastic, something beautiful, yet fragile.

"Maybe a parallel universe that you step into, and you get stuck there. Or you get back into normality, had a hell of a ride, and count the days until you can visit it again. It’s meant to stimulate your imagination.”
