The Brian Jonestown Massacre have announced details of a new album.

Musique De Film Imaginé is due out on April 27th and was inspired by the French New Wave (Nouvelle Vague) and the unique work of its directors (Jean-Luc Godard, François Truffaut, Jacques Demy, André Bazin...)

"The album that you are about to hear is a soundtrack, my own creation, a tribute to great directors and filmmakers to an era that now seems to be behind us," frontman Anton Newcombe told NME. "Leaving the smart person to care to imagine that this art could now be in the shadow of its former glory. The interesting thing about this project is that the film does not exist either. Even so, I imagined and I realised its soundtrack... Now it's your turn..."

They have also unveiled the album's first taster, a cinematic beauty called 'Philadelphie Story' - sung by French actress/singer Soko. Stream it below.
