Bombay Bicycle Club are back! The band have announced their sixth studio album, led by title track "My Big Day."

The follow-up to 2020's Everything Else Has Gone WrongMy Big Day will be upon us on October 20 via Arts & Crafts.

Produced predominantly by the band's own Jack Steadman, the 11-track LP features credited guest appearances from Damon Albarn, Nilüfer Yanya, Jay Som and Holly Humberstone, as well as backing vocals from Flyte, Rae Morris and Kawala.

"We hope this album will surprise you," Bombay Bicycle Club wrote in a statement posted on social media. "After nearly 20 years together, there is always a danger of falling into a comfort zone and we've pushed harder than usual against that on this record. We continue to make music together not only because of the deep connection we have to one another, but also because we believe something magical happens when we make music together."

Check out the video for "My Big Day" — where "Jack smokes a bong, Jamie [MacColl] pretends to shit himself, Suren [de Saram] lives out his childhood dream to be a TV weatherman and Ed [Nash] christens a portaloo" — and the album tracklist below.
