Bloc Party unveil new single "If We Get Caught"

24 March 2022, 11:39 | Written by Cerys Kenneally

Bloc Party have released a fourth preview of their Alpha Games album titled "If We Get Caught".

"If We Get Caught" will appear on Alpha Games with previous outings "Sex Magik", "The Girls Are Fighting" and "Traps".

Lead singer Kele Okereke says of the new release, "There are only two songs that I feel like have any tenderness on the record and "If We Get Caught" is one of them. It's really about recognising that the game is coming to an end and about trying to steal a moment of tenderness with your partner before the curtain comes crashing down. I think it's about trying to find moments where you can really connect with someone amidst all of the chaos that's going on in the world."

Alpha Games will follow Bloc Party's 2016 album Hymns.

"If We Get Caught" is out now. Bloc Party's Alpha Games album will arrive 29 April via Infectious / BMG, and is available to pre-order now. They'll play London's Alexandra Palace on 28 May. Head to for tickets.
