Indie-pop trio Two Door Cinema Club have announced LP3, Gameshow, and shared first single "Are We Ready? (Wreck)".

Annie Mac debuted the single as her Hottest Record In The World last night, and you can now listen online.

The band's Alex Trimble says of the tune: “While I was writing this single I discovered this term weltschmertz, the German word for being at odds with the world around you. The fact that it was a fully coined term and related to so many people that have existed and do exist made me feel it was okay to not exist on the same level as everyone else, it was okay to be comfortable doing your own thing. ‘Are We Ready? (Wreck)’ was me… not attacking the world around me but outlining why I don’t really get it and why I don’t fit in with it."

“We’re not embracing the pop that’s going on now in a melodic or structural sense," Trimble continues about the album's influence. "The two biggest influences for me were Prince and Bowie - both total pioneers who straddled that line between out-there pop and avant-garde craziness."

Gameshow is out 14 October via Parlophone. It follows 2012's Beacon.

"Are We Ready? (Wreck)" can be heard below.
