15 February 2022, 15:07 | Written by Cerys Kenneally

Ibibio Sound Machine have delivered new cut "Protection From Evil" as a third preview of their Hot Chip-produced album Electricity.

"Protection From Evil" will appear on Electricity alongside earlier outings "All That You Want" and "Electricity", and is teamed with a Tiago Di Mauro-directed video.

Electricity will follow Ibibio Sound Machine's 2019 album Doko Mien, and is produced by Hot Chip.

Hot Chip said of working on the record, "Prior to the sessions, we had run into Ibibio Sound Machine at festivals and loved watching them perform. There are very talented musicians throughout the band, and Eno is a massively charismatic, skilled singer. The sessions were hugely rewarding as Ibibio brought in friends and collaborators to add a wide array of different instruments - some of which were unfamiliar to us. The songs on this record are uniformly great, and we were really happy to be a part of making it."

"Protection From Evil" is out now. Ibibio Sound Machine's Electricity album will follow on 25 March via Merge Records, and is available to pre-order now.
