STARSAILOR are back with their first studio album in eight years.

The indie band, whose line-up includes Warrington's Ben Byrne and James 'Stel' Stelfox, will be launching All This Life on September 1.

Starsailor have been working with Cooking Vinyl on the release where their label mates include the likes of Richard Ashcroft, James, The Prodigy, Billy Bragg, Madness and Underworld.

Listen To Your Heart is the opening track from their fifth record and is out now.

You can listen to it below.

Frontman James Walsh described it as 'an energetic, emotional song'.

He added: "I think in doing what we do, you have to be emotion and instinct lead. If every decision was sensible, practical and mulled over, we'd never have done anything or got anywhere. It’s not always easy, so you have to keep reminding yourself.

"Recording the album was an intense and rewarding experience and we're excited to get it out there. There's a good mix of the aspects of the band people know and love, and a few changes in direction."

The former Warrington Festival headliners, who are performing at British Summer Time at Hyde Park today alongside Phil Collins and Blondie, have also announced a tour to promote the 11-track album.

After playing at Hope and Glory Festival in Liverpool on August 5 the four-piece will embark on a 12-date tour of the country. They will be at Liverpool Academy on October 12 and The Ritz in Manchester on October 24.

Starsailor drummer Ben and bassist Stel met at St Oswald’s Primary School. They then met James Walsh at Wigan and Leigh Music College.

Keyboardist Barry Westhead completed the line-up, cementing the band’s sound.

Originally signing to EMI Records, Starsailor shot to fame with their debut album Love Is Here in 2001 which reached number two in the UK album charts.

For the band’s second CD, 2003's Silence Is Easy, Starsailor worked with legendary producer Phil Spector. The album also reached number two in the UK and went gold.

Starsailor, who have supported the Rolling Stones and U2, went on to chalk up four albums, 10 top 40 singles and three million record sales before taking a break in 2009.

They reformed in 2014 releasing a greatest hits album the following year.
