The Stranglers will honour late keyboardist Dave Greenfield on a forthcoming album. New LP Dark Matters arrives September 10 through the band's own Coursegood imprint.

The first single "And If You Should See Dave..." is a tribute to Greenfield, who passed away last year at age 71 from complications of COVID-19. The keyboardist's playing is featured on eight of Dark Matters' 11 tracks.

Calling Greenfield a "great friend and colleague of 45 years," Stranglers bassist JJ Burnel said of the single, "We had already recorded most of the album with him and during the lockdowns our only wish was to complete it as a fitting tribute to his life and work. I consider this to be one of our finest recordings."

Dark Matters marks the first full-length from the Stranglers since 2012's Giants. You can find its complete tracklist below.
