After revealing on Twitter in May that their eighth album is "finished" and "being primed for release", Placebo have shared what appears to be a billboard for a new single titled "Beautiful James".

Placebo uploaded the image on socials yesterday (13 September), and captioned the posts with a release date - 17 September.

If "Beautiful James" is a new single, it'll be their first new material since 2016's "Jesus' Son", which featured on their Life's What You Make It EP.

The band's eighth album will be their first since 2013's Loud Like Love.

Placebo's "Beautiful James" will arrive on Friday (17 September).
