London Grammar are back with new song "America", the fifth track to be lifted from their upcoming album Californian Soil.

"America" is the group's third release of 2021 after "How Does It Feel" and "Lose Your Head", and will appear on Californian Soil alongside last year's "Californian Soil" and "Baby It's You" singles.

Lead vocalist Hannah Reid wrote of the new song on Twitter, "This song is about my journey letting go of the past and learning how to write music after a difficult time with my health. I use the idea of the American dream to wave goodbye to things I didn’t need anymore."

Californian Soil will be London Grammar's first album since 2017's Truth is a Beautiful Thing.

Reid adds of their forthcoming album, "This record is about gaining possession of my own life. You imagine success will be amazing. Then you see it from the inside and ask, why am I not controlling this thing? Why am I not allowed to be in control of it? And does that connect, in any way to being a woman? If so, how can I do that differently?"

"America" is out now. London Grammar's Californian Soil album will be released 16 April via Ministry Of Sound, and is available to pre-order now.
