The Vaccines have shared another preview of their forthcoming fifth album ‘Back In Love City’ – listen to ‘El Paso’ below.
The band’s new album is set to drop on September 10, and was recorded at Sonic Ranch in El Paso, Texas and produced by Daniel Ledinsky – known for his past work with Tove Lo, Rihanna and TV On The Radio.
So far, the band have shared the LP’s title track, first single ‘Headphones Baby’ and recent preview ‘Alone Star’.
Fourth track ‘El Paso’ is the slowest, most meditative cut released from the album yet, and was recorded on a nylon string guitar originally owned by Elliott Smith – listen to the track and watch its lyric video below:

The band’s most recent album, ‘Combat Sports’, came out in 2018.
