"Laughing Cavalier" follows on from last month's warped "Rubber Bullets", which landed with news of Clinic's first album in seven years.

The new single arrives with an equally trippy animated visual directed and created by Joseph May.

Clinic's forthcoming Wheeltappers and Shunters album is their first since 2012's Free Reign.

They recorded the album at founding member Jonathan Hartley's Liverpool studio, before recruiting Dilip Harris (King Krule, Sons Of Kemet, Mount Kimbie) to mix the album.

The group's Ade Blackburn says of the new record, "It’s a satirical take on British culture - high and low. It fascinates me that people look back on the 1970s as the glory days. It’s emerged that there was a darker, more perverse side to that time. When you look back on it now it was quite clearly there in mainstream culture."

"Laughing Cavalier" is out now. Wheeltappers and Shunters arrives 10 May via Domino, and is available to pre-order now.
